However, the behavior of animals was monitored not only in North America, but also in the national parks of Russia. The staff of the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Zapovednoe Podlemorye” in Buryatia also observed the rodents.
“In our region, there are also marmots, not simple, but black-headed. And the weather forecast for “their” vacation is the same year after year. Judging by the friendly “snores” coming from all the holes, there are still sleep and sleep until spring “, – he said in the nature reserve.
The black-capped cycle is a rare species listed in the Red Books of Russia and Buryatia. The name was given due to the dark spot on the head. In the Barguzinsky Reserve, which is part of the “Reserved Podlemorya”, it lives mainly in the upper reaches of the rivers.
