  1. wow…okay, I am uninformed…but had no idea re these critters….

    are they in the Calgary environs too?

    they look cute and harmless enough, but those teeth look pretty sharp

    • They are in the mountains, in rocky areas with lots of loose rocks, crevasses, and plants growing nearby. They are harmless. The location cited is probably the closest to Calgary, about an hour’s drive away.
