Like like us, marmot siblings fight constantly! This type of play teaches the marmots fine motor skills, and likely social behaviours too, such as how to ask for space. These pups were recorded by one of our Field Crew, Joey Chrisholm, in 2016 at Mt Washington. The pups won’t get names until they turn at least one year old, but their mother is Abby, a wild born marmot who has been a great breeder. We need more like her to help the species recover!
