Groundhog | Woodchuck

Set of dimensioned elevation drawings of the Groundhog (Woodchuck)

The Groundhog or Woodchuck, scientifically known as Marmota monax, is one kind of the 14 species of giant ground squirrels identified as marmots. The Groundhog undergoes hibernation and will dig a winter burrow deep enough to ensure a temperature above freezing as well as maintain a maximum weight right before entering this state.

Also called the “whistle-pig,” the Groundhog utilizes a high-pitched whistle to alert its colony if it notices danger. Another way it remains watchful is by standing completely still on its hind feet. The Groundhog or Woodchuck is noted for being territorial and aggressive in nature, using its claws and incisors to dig or attack if needed.

Groundhogs have a height of 8.7”-11” (22-28 cm), body length between 16”-20” (41-51 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 5-13 lb (2.3-5.9 kg). The tail length of a Groundhog is 4”-6” (10-15 cm). Groundhogs have a typical lifespan of 3-6 years in the wild and up to 10-14 years in captivity.

Rodents are classified by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in both their upper and lower jaws; the length of their incisors are maintained by gnawing, which is how they eat. The diet of Rodents usually consists of seeds and plants, but some species do have more varied diets.
