Four years ago, “Dude,” went missing from his home on Mt McQuillan. Until last week that is, when he mysteriously turned up at another marmot colony at Mt Moriarty!

It seems that The Dude is another wanderer. Born at the Douglas colony in 2012, he dispersed at 2 years old to McQuillan, where he lived until at least 2016. After that, we lost track of him, and we’re not sure when, or why, he chose to move again. Regardless, we’re happy to have him back in the fold!
