marmot definition and meaning

What is a "marmot"?

A marmot is a large, burrowing rodent that belongs to the family Sciuridae. Marmots are typically found in mountainous regions of North America, Europe, and Asia, and they are known for their stout body, short legs, and dense fur. They have a stocky build with a heavy-set appearance, and they can range in size from small to large, depending on the species. Marmots are known for their burrowing behavior, creating complex burrow systems with multiple entrances, tunnels, and chambers for hibernation, nesting, and food storage. They are diurnal, meaning they are active during the day and are herbivorous, feeding on a variety of plant material, including grasses, leaves, and flowers. Marmots are social animals, often living in colonies or "towns," and they communicate using vocalizations and body language.
