On my 3 day hiking adventure in the national park of Switzerland and it’s surroundings, I was lucky enough to video capture some marmots (Marmota marmota).
My journey includes the beautiful Val Mora. A pristine valley sitting between two high rising mountain ranges in the canton of Grisons, Switzerland.
The alpine marmot (Marmota marmota) is a species of marmot found in mountainous areas of central and southern Europe. Alpine marmots live at heights between 800 and 3,200 metres in the Alps, Carpathians, Tatras, the Pyrenees and Northern Apennines in Italy.
They are excellent diggers, able to penetrate soil that even a pickaxe would have difficulty with, and spend up to nine months per year in hibernation.
The footage was recorded in the national park of Switzerland (Google Maps).
