      Thanks so much for your response. I was looking for Meercat and did get the answer. Didn’t know we had “Meadow Moles” so all is not lost. Thanks again.

      Marmot kept on coming to mind but someone else did supply me with the correct answer which was “Meercat”. Thanks so much for responding. P.S. I met a Marmot face to face riding up the road of Mt. Washington. I think they’re related. Thanks again.
