Himalayan Marmots are marmots found in the Himalayan regions ranging in elevation from 300 metres to 4,500 metres. They are about the size of a large housecat, and live in colonies. Marmota himalayanus is closely related to the Woodchuck, the Hoary Marmot and the Yellow-bellied Marmot. It has a dark chocolate-brown coat with contrasting yellow patches on its face and chest.
