This poor Yellow-Bellied Marmot Mom was very busy. Her babies were just beginning to explore areas outside of the den and she wasn't happy about it! She'd go and roll one baby into a ball and carry it in her mouth back to the den. As soon as one baby was safe inside, she would go collect another by which time the first baby was already back outside the den running around. Not sure where the male or other female was during this time...they didn't make an appearance until later on in the day leaving this poor girl alone with at least 8 active little explorers.
