These fleas are itchy.

All of these pictures are of Gray Marmot (Marmota baibacina) babies, also called kits. They were taken in Pikertyk, in the Tien Shan Mountains, eastern Kyrgyzstan. I’d also like to thank Khalil Karimov, without whom I would have not gotten these pictures. Thanks Khalil!

    • Dear Kawela,
      Many marmot species are hosts to fleas that carry the plague (even in north america), including this species. In fact while I was there, there was a huge outbreak of the plague for which we had to monitor ourselves for symptoms. I do totally agree with you though, they are super cute and adorable!
