Marmot Madness.

Thursday, January 24, 2013

I'm sorry. I couldn't help it. These photos of eight-year-old Matteo Walch and his marmot friends were just begging to be shared. Apparently, Matteo and his family vacation in the Austrian Alps annually - and each year, the boy rekindles his friendship with the animals (who are normally known to be fearful of humans). 


Says his mother, "He loves those animals and they are not at all afraid of Matteo because he has a feeling towards them and they understand that."


Too cute. See the full story at the Daily Mail, here. Happy Thursday!

Oh my god that is adorable! I always wanted to be one of those kids that could talk with animals. I would have a pet marmot for sure!

Ahh, my heart! These photos should come with a warning: Viewers will be overwhelmed by cuteness or run the risk of heart melting.
