Matteo and His Unusual Pals

Monday, March 11, 2013

Have you heard about this boy before? Matteo Walch just stole my heart and made my busy Monday wonderful! This 8 year old kiddo has developed an incredible bond with marmots that are notoriously shy and totally unaffectionate towards people. Somehow he is the only person those rascals love, trust and admire. For the past four years Matteo and his family take annual trips to Groslocker in the Austrian Alps where the colony lives, so he can always rekindle their friendship. His mom says that the reason they are not afraid of the little boy is because they understand the deep friendship and love he has towards them. Special, don’t you think? xo

P.S: Also, those best pals, and the man and his elephant best buddy!
P.P.S: Plus, do you remember this elephant nursery in Kenya? (So awesome).

Basia, I read somewhere that one day 4 years ago while on vacation hiking, the little guy was approached by a few marmots and that is how they became friends:) Sweet, isn't it?
