Himalayan Marmot

One of the popular wildlife sighted in and around Ladakh in Kashmir, especially in the north and northeastern parts of the district is the Himalayan Marmot. This stocky, coarse-furred, burrowing rodent with a short bushy tail is a lively animal and often lives in colonies on the slopes and valley floors. Marmots are difficult to spot during winter as they tend to hibernate.
