Ferret D.jpg

Used by The Nihilists to intimidate The Dude whilst he was taking a bath. The marmot is later referred to by Walter as an amphibious rodent, saying that "keeping it within a's not legal either, Dude".


  • The marmot is really a ferret.
  • A marmot was originally planned to be used in the bathtub scene but a ferret was swapped in once the Coen Brothers realized that a marmot would be too large for filming purposes.
