ABSTRACT
Woodchuck, or Groundhog, an American marmot. The woodchuck is a burrowing animal that ranges from Hudson Bay to South Carolina and westward almost to the Rockies. According to legend, it emerges from its hole on Groundhog Day (February 2) to see if winter is over. If it sees its shadow, the tradition goes, winter will last six more weeks; if there is no shadow, winter is over.
