Woodchuck (Marmota monax)

The woodchuck constructs two burrows: one for summer and another for winter. The second one is always deep enough to be located below the frost level.
When the time for hibernation is come, the woodchuck seals off the tunnel.

  2. Hi Dominque, what a great image capture of the Woodchuck. I have seen one here recently, but it stayed hidden in a culvert and I could only get it's head shots. We have been traveling and I am so glad to be catching up with everyone. Take care~
