Groundhogs (or woodchucks) are large rodents that are found throughout much of the eastern United States and into parts of Canada and Alaska. Groundhogs are typically around 5-10 lbs in weight and anywhere from 15 to 30 inches long. When they see, smell, or hear an observer, groundhogs may seek refuge in one of their underground burrows.

Woodchucks and groundhogs are two names for the same animal. Stocky and usually gray or varying shades of brown in color, groundhogs can grow up to two feet long and weigh more than 10 pounds. 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.
They are also known by quite a few other names. From time to time, people call them whistle pigs, marmots, and even land beavers.
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.
