Is A Woodchuck Also A Groundhog?

Closeup_groundhogIf you ask Wikipedia the answer is yes. Apparently the little sucker is also known as a whistle-pig or a land-beaver. These little facts, I was not aware of.

Yes, the ground hog was in that stupid movie with Bill Murray.

Us really smart and totally cool Americans (& the Canadians, but I truly mean no disrespect) look for this thing to come out of his burrow every February 2nd, and if he sees his shadow, that means we will have 6 more weeks of winter. If we’re lucky and that little pig-beaver-hog-chuck doesn’t see his shadow, we are supposed to get an early spring.

Like I said, the little weasel didn’t see his shadow this year.

And we’re supposed to get a winter storm tomorrow.

Up above is a REAL picture of a woodchuck. Or a ground hog. Or a whistle-pig. Or a land-beaver.

Oh, well, thank you for clearing that up. i am near wetting myself laughing here and my husband thinks I've lost it. Love your work!

According to what I heard, they actually dragged poor little Phil out roughly 5 minutes BEFORE sunrise. With all the camera lights shining on him there was no way that he could not see a shadow. It was fixed, it's a plot to keep us all in a deep freeze for six more weeks.
