    It's a cute little animal with brown fur. I believe it's part of the rodent family. They burrow in the ground. Like prairie dogs. My dad and I use to shoot them when I was a teenager. Don't know nowadays if you can hunt them as things have really changed.

    Need to put one on a catapult so you can "Chuck" the woodchuck. If your chuck were operated by a guy named Chuck who had stripped out the chuck on his drill while eating chuck steak while watching Chuck Norris in delta force ... Well, the universe would implode.

    The groundhog (Marmota monax), also known as a woodchuck, whistle-pig, or in some areas land-beaver, is a rodent of the family Sciuridae, belonging to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots. Other marmots, such as the yellow-bellied and hoary marmots, live in rocky and mountainous areas, but the woodchuck is a lowland creature. It is widely distributed in North America and common in the northeastern and central United States as well as Canada. Groundhogs are found as far north as Alaska, with their habitat extending southeast to Georgia

    The etymology of the name woodchuck is unrelated to wood or chucking. It stems from an Algonquian (possibly Narragansett) name for the animal, wuchak. The similarity between the words has led to the common tongue-twister:
    How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?A woodchuck would chuck all the wood he could if a woodchuck could chuck wood![SUP][

    Thanx to MSFleetwood for the visual! In case anyone is interested, they do not taste like chicken. They are a bit greasy. (Probably more info than you wanted to know.)
