Yellow-bellied Marmot

A Yellow-bellied Marmot seen on top of Mount Dana, Yosemite National Park, USA. The road in the background is Tioga Pass Road. Yellow-bellied Marmots are ground squirrels that live in the western United States and southwestern Canada. They inhabit steppes, meadows, talus fields and other open habitats, sometimes on the edge of deciduous or coniferous forests, and typically above 2,000 metres (6,562 ft) of elevation.
