In World of Warcraft, the most common type of marmot, the Neutral Brown Marmot, is only seen in the Blade's Edge Mountains area.

You can control another type of marmot besides the Brown Marmot, simply called a Horde Marmot, when you are on the quest H [67] The Smallest Creatures by using the [Kodohide Drum] by a cave near Bloodmaul Camp. Note that the "Brown Marmot" become the "Marmot" when controlled by a player.

The Neutral Borean Marmot can be found around the Borean Tundra.

In Ulduar, Brann Bronzebeard yells to Archmage Rhydian, "Sneak?! What do you think we are, marmots?"
