8-Year-Old Has Amazing Friendship With Alpine Marmots - PawNation#photo=4

Nose to nose: A marmot greets 8yr old Matteo in Austrian Alps. "They are notoriously shy around humans, beating their tails & chattering their teeth to warn us off before emitting loud whistles to tell other members of their colony to flee. But when these alpine marmots see Matteo Walch, they scuttle to his side & show him nothing but affection. The 8yr old built up a remarkable relationship with the creatures since first being taken to see them by his nature-loving family four years ago."

The sweetest friendship…
