Let's not forget...that keeping wildlife...an amphibious rodent, for uh, domestic...you know, within the city...that ain't legal either.

Tell it to the marmot police.

This just goes to prove my theory that a fat animal is a cute animal.

Why am I picturing him wearing a bow tie?
6
So is a marmot basically just a squirrel without a tail?
7
@1, amphibious?

@6, more like a beaver

@7 It's a Big Lebowski quote and it's awesome.

Yes, Kelly, you can haz marmot. There's a plague of them here in Spokane. Granted, it's a ten hour round-trip drive, but so worth it! Come get two of 'em, and grab a wild turkey to take home for Thanksgiving, too!

Don't dismiss this little fat assed Marmot. How do you think he got that fat?
He took down and ate the entire Leopard he's sitting on. Ain't nothing left but the pelt, and woe to anyone who is within range when he runs out of biscuits. "I came here to kick ass and eat biscuits. And I'm almost out of biscuits."
12
He haz marmot boobs!
13
@1, what are you, a fucking park ranger?
14
He has....hands! Holy crap. I feel like I'm snooping on some dude while he's trying to eat in peace.

as moses saw the burning bush, so see you this synod of canaan.

Our local marmots are wonderful. They live high in the mountains and hibernate most of the year. When not hibernating, they gorge on plants, bask in the sun and whistle. The hoary marmots at Mt Rainier are probably waking up now, and you should go visit them at Paradise.

They make a high pitched call that echoes around a valley like nothing else- my husband was raised in Juneau and calls them "whistle pigs." They're kind of silver-grey with big fat brown butts. Totally adorable.

@13 take it easy. It's a Big Lebowski line by Walter.

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck?

He made me think of my favorite fantasy animal to own:

a Capybara (wa!, freaky dog-hamster)

Please don't forget the marmot's cousin, sassy Lake Louise "15 minutes of fame" squirrel:

Thanks 16, I'm pretty sure "hoary marmot" is going to be a frequent insult in my repertoire from now on. Example: "Stop eating all the chips. Your being quite the hoary marmot right now." It sounds like such a bad thing.
