I never understood what the difference between a marmot and a groundhog was, until I found out that groundhogs are actually just a kind of red-brown marmot. So, here, in this image, we have a nice marmot family. The mother and her baby are kissing, and the other little baby looks like he’s waiting for his turn! These guys are super fuzzy and soft. I love their ears and their characteristic rodent chubbiness. I also love their bushy tails!
