    The real life Mowgli: Schoolboy Matteo Walch, eight, forms special relationship with colony of alpine marmots | Mail Online

  • Stella Stenroos

    Furry friends: 8-year-old has uncanny way with marmots * Meet Austria’s young marmot whisperer. Eight-year-old Matteo Walch’s friendship with a clan of Alpine animals has spanned more than half his lifetime. <3

    Marmot Boy Is FRIENDS WITH MARMOTS This kid is like the marmot whisperer. Marmots notoriously are not down with human bros, but when Matteo Walch and his family started vacationing in the Austrian alps, this particular colony of marmots fell in love with him, and look forward to his visit every year. Hooray that this happened! (Via Stopes.)

  • Anna Nio

    Eight-year old Matteo first met these marmots four years ago during a trip with his family to Grossglockner in the Austrian Alps. Alpine Marmots are known for being very shy in the presence of humans. But these particular marmots don’t do anything of the sort when they spot Matteo. Instead they scurry over to greet him and show nothing but affection. The family now returns to the same location each year for a two week visit so that Matteo and his small furry friends can spend more time together.
