A Baby Groundhog Discovers Dirt Dens
Cson has been rehabbing an orphaned baby groundhog who seems to get the idea pretty quickly that holes in the ground are very good places to check out. Nice!
Groundhogs are actually members of the squirrel family, and when they are very small, they look quite a bit like regular tree squirrels.
By late Fall, if all goes well, this little fellow will be pushing about 10 pounds, and by the end of its second year, if it has had a good feed, it will weigh in at around 15 pounds.
