Marmots

Marmots mostely live in burrows, and hibernate through the winter.  Most marmots are also highly social using whistles to communicate with one another, most notably when alarmed.

Marmots are in fact large squirrels in the genus Marmota.  They mainly eat greens and various types of grasses, berries, flowers, lichens, mosses, and roots.

The latest endeavour in relocating marmots onto a remote mountain top in southeastern Vancouver Island was documented by Mike Mckinlay Productions and George Faulkner Productions in conjunction with the Calgary Zoo. The hike involved a very steep 35 minute ascent following a rocky and harrowing drive up a precarious logging road. Once reaching the area of relocation/reintroduction of the marmots, a helicopter landed and dropped of the marmots to the wildlife biologists to safely corral them into a den amongst the broken rock and grassy terrain of the mountain top.
