Marmot ruins timelapse video and licks camera lens


This is the moment a seriously cute marmot unwittingly ruined a timelapse video - by licking the camera lens.

The marmot interfered with a time-lapse video of the Glacier National Park in Montana.

The Greenpeace video is trying to raise awareness of global warming melting glaciers and shrinking the alpine tundra environment, lobbying the US Department of the Interior to keep coal in the ground.




Greenpeace USA wrote on its Facebook page: "Ever seen a marmot...lick you in the face? Now you can!

"Though we didn't capture the timelapse video of Glacier National Park that we intended to, we captured something much cooler...Marmot Love."




The video has also been uploaded to YouTube, where Greenpeace wrote: "This Marmot would like to give you a kiss for helping to save its home!

"In Glacier National Park, global warming is melting glaciers and shrinking the alpine tundra environment as treelines move higher up the mountains. Shrinking tundra threatens marmots and other animals that live up high in these mountains.

"SIGN & SHARE if you think the US Department of the Interior needs to keep coal in the ground so that marmots in Glacier can stay cool! http://bit.ly/V89lHi #parksnotcoal."
