Alaska, Brower's or Brooks Range marmot

Marmota broweri

Distribution. Brooks Range mountains on Alaska's north slope.

Not much is known about Alaska marmots. They are most closely related to black-capped marmots who live on the other side of the former Bering Land Bridge. Alaska marmots are active about four months a year and consequently take at least three years to mature. They are reported to produce two alarm calls. A call from a captive marmot was recorded by Prof. Robert Rausch and is available.
