This Little Boy Doesn’t Have Your Average Group of “Friends”

Meet Matteo Walsh. He has some pretty unusual friends, called marmots. One year, while vacationing in the Alps, Matteo stumbled across a family of these adorable, overgrown squirrels and they never forgot him.

They enjoy snacks together like two old pals.
