The schoolboy, 8, who has struck up a remarkable friendship with a colony of alpine animals


They are notoriously shy around humans, beating their tails and chattering their teeth to try to warn us off before emitting loud whistles to tell other members of their colony to flee.

But when these alpine marmots see Matteo Walch, they scuttle to his side and show him nothing but affection.

The eight-year-old built up a remarkable relationship with the creatures since first being taken to see them by his nature-loving family four years ago.

 

Special bond: Matteo Walch has struck up an unlikely friendship with a group of marmots in the Austrian Alps

 

 

The family return to visit the colony in Groslocker in the Austrian Alps for two weeks every year.

Matteo’s mother Michaela said: 'Their friendship has lasted for more than four years now.

'He loves those animals and they are not at all afraid of Matteo because he has a feeling towards them and they understand that.
