Yellow Bellied Marmot, also known as the Whistle Pig
They hang out around large rocks, usually they lay on top of them.
This whistlepig was both interested and intimidated by me.
I tried to immitate his squeaky whistle, when I came close, he popped
his head out.
He was just going to wait until I left.
Packing on some weight
Eating some grass
Mr Whistle Pig hears another Whistle Pig nearby.
Probably his mother calling him home for dinner.
