"Little" man?

Our field season is nearing to an end which means that marmots are putting on body fat in preparation for hibernation.

Above and below are recent photos of the marmot with the mark, "little man." Judging by the size of his stomach relative to his front legs, we need have to consider renaming this marmot "pudgy little guy".

The ladies sure seem to like him though; he currently defends the largest harem of females out of all of our colony sites!
