Groundhogs are stocky and usually gray or varying shades of brown in color. Other identifying features include short and bushy tails, rounded ears, and dark brown or black paws. Their bodies are also covered with guard hairs that give the pests a grizzled look.
Known for their foraging behavior, groundhogs eat grasses, including alfalfa, clover, and chickweed. These pests can also destroy gardens by feeding root vegetables, corn, and soybeans. Sometimes they even feed on small insects, bird eggs, and the bark of trees.
Inhabiting much of the Eastern United States, groundhogs are usually found in areas bordering forests. They typically build their dens in fields, pastures, and wooded lots.
