Marmots can grow up to 2 feet in length and weigh nearly 12 pounds. Males are larger than females, though both genders have sturdy bodies and short, wide heads. Their coats are varying shades of brown with noticeable patches of yellowish fur on the sides of their necks. In rare instances, marmots appear dark brown or even black. They have short legs, small ears, front claws for digging, and furry tails. The rodents resemble overgrown squirrels.
Herbivorous, marmots subsist off diets of grasses and other vegetation. Some of their favorite foods include berries and other fruits, lichens, mosses, vegetables, flowers, and roots.
Found in forested areas, arid plains, and mountain ranges, marmots are adaptable and survive in a number of climates. They create burrows in which they raise their young, hide from predators, and hibernate. These nests have many tunnels branching off the main passageways and often connect to other burrows in the surrounding area. Unlike prairie dogs and groundhogs, marmots can inhabit areas of high elevation and will burrow into rocky outcrops, which allows them to better observe their surroundings.
