Yellow Bellied Marmots


Mt Evans has more Marmots per mile than any other known mountain in Colorado. Marmots spend most of their day sleeping in their dens. A marmot is a rodent that physically resembles a beaver, except for the tail. It hibernates in the winter and thus emerges in the spring a much thinner animal. Between spring and fall, it will gain between 10 and 15 pounds, mostly by eating grasses early in the morning and late evening.
