The Marmot

The «Mungg» in Numbers

Marmots can be heard whistling around their dens in Graubünden. With these whistles, which are in fact cries, marmots warn each other. A single whistle signals a golden eagle attack from above, whereas a series of whistles signal danger from below. In many places, «Munggen», as marmots are called in Graubünden, have lost their shyness to humans.
