Marmots as pets

If you want an Olympic marmot as a pet, check out this website for some guidelines:

Some people have taken in orphaned marmots to care for until they can survive on their own in the wild. Of course many of these people probably end up keeping the marmot around as a pet afterwards. Some more interesting reading about Yellow-bellied marmots as pets can be found here.

I think a couple important considerations are to keep your marmot away from your garden, prepare yourself for burrows to appear in your back yard and don't be surprised when your marmot goes into hibernation!
