Is this a groundhog?



Heydave sends this great picture of something that sure LOOKS like a groundhog - anyone know what it is? Ruth?

I don't think it's a groundhog. We had them in Michigan, and they're much bigger than you'd imagine.

This looks like a big squirrel to me, 'cept the tail doesn't look right.

It's true - in the movie "Groundhog Day" Ponxatawny (sp?) Phil is HUGE - bigger than my cat!

I think it's a chipmunk.

IT was a Woodland Assassin, ready to mess with anyone who dare tread too close.

I go with chipmunk, maybe even a western pica. But woodchucks are kind of flabby. This is too lean for woodchuckery.

hey everybody, at first I thought he was a "prairie squirrel pup, but seeing his solitary nature, admit he falls under woodland rodent; beavermonk".

Easy, that's Nancy Pelosi disquised as a squirrel.

Easy, that is Nancy Pelosi counting the democrat tree huggers.
