|The Himalayan marmot is one of the highest living mammals in the world. Himalayan marmots are found from 4000 m to the upper edge of the vegetated zone (5500 m) in the mountains. A subspecies of the Himalayan marmot, M. himalyana robusta, is one of the largest marmots and may weigh over 6 kg.|
Here one can see two pups looking at us anxiously. Locals call them "Fya".

there is marmots in North America, there is in Europe in the Alpians
and it is the first time (or i forgot) that i see that there is also marmots
in the Himalayan Mountains, and why not if there is in the Alpian mountains,
here in North America is everywhere even in the citys,
a beautiful photography of these marmots with fine POV, DOF,
i love that they are from far and we see them in their habitat, TFS
Dear friend, Dr. Subhash Ranjan,
Very interesting, indeed!!! Had no idea these existed anymore. They look a lot like miniture BEARS.
HIGHLY EDUCATIVE, at least to me!!!
Mario your friend ..... ALWAYS.
P.S. Forgot to mention: The distribution of the HUGE BOULDERS shows clearly how the glaciers have moved them .... took millions of years .... HOW POWERFUL NATURE IS!!!
