Groundhog-What it is-What is a groundhog? Does its fur have a market value?
The groundhog is an animal of the marmot family. It is more generally known as the woodchuck. It is a short legged, heavy bodied animal somewhat smaller than a coon, with short tail; general color gray, varied with black and red. It has not fur, but a coarse hair. The skins are bought by a few of the fur companies at about five cents each. It digs dens in the hillsides, near fields, and is usually the maker of the dens used by skunks. It lives on grasses and similar vegetable food. Groundhogs are quite common in all of the eastern states, and I am surprised that you donít know what they are, but you probably know them under the name woodchuck, which is the proper name.
