Yellow-bellied Marmot - Marmota flaviventris

These large rodents can be found with a bit of searching at Writing-on-Stone Provincial Park in southern Alberta. They like to sun themselves on the flat hoodoo tops, soaking up the warmth.

    It's looking quite... flat there! Absolutely love how it's just laying like that. Makes for an interesting shot! Great details (that's some big teeth it's got there) and gorgeous colours! I quite like the light reflecting in its eye.

    Nuao Flat and fat, happily sunning itself on top of a big rock!

    Slouching-on-Stone Provincial park would be equally apt.
