Fox and rodent battle

Hows the rodent bigger than the coyote? Photo shopped?

Tibetan Fox 4-5.5 kg and Marmot 2 to 11 kg.

This Himalayan marmot was not long out of hibernation when it was surprised by a mother Tibetan fox with three hungry cubs to feed. With lightning-fast reactions, Yongqing captured the attack – the power of the predator baring her teeth, the terror of her prey, the intensity of life and death written on their faces.

As one of the highest-altitude-dwelling mammals, the Himalayan marmot relies on its thick fur for survival through the extreme cold. In the heart of winter it spends more than six months in an exceptionally deep burrow with the rest of its colony. Marmots usually do not resurface until spring, an opportunity not to be missed by hungry predators.

You should know that what i don't know about cut and paste is not worth knowing. looks like you are an expert in all things photo related 🙂 

Strangely enough my Slovak nickname in some parts is Svist (marmot) :blush:
