Scientific name: marmota marmota


This mammal is common in the italian alps and in some mountains of central Italy (Appennini). During winter he hibernates (like some bears).

It can be recognized by a typical whistle, that’s like an alarm for other marmots

Photos have been taken in Gran Paradiso National Park (Ceresole Reale – TO)
