マーモット – Marmot


キバラマーモット、目撃したのは2回目、写真に収めたのは初めてです。シーダーブレイク国定公園を散策中に崖から登ってきました。- A Yellow-bellied marmot.  This is my second time witnessing, but the first time capturing this animal in my camera.  It came out from a cliff at Cedar Breaks National Monument while we were hiking on a trail.望遠レンズがなかったので、質は悪いんですが、雰囲気わかりますよね。- Unfortunately, the quality is not good because I didn’t have a telephoto lens.  Even so, I think you can still understand the general features.

キバラマーモットはシーダーブレイク (富士山と同じぐらいの高度)のような高所に生息し、約80%を巣穴で過ごすそうです。20%の外出中に出会えて良かった。- Yellow-bellied marmots live at higher altitude places like Cedar Breaks, 10,000 feet, and spend 80% of their lives in their burrows.  I am glad we met him during the 20% of the time he was out.
