We have groundhogs in our backyard. It started with one, but now there are babies (see the photo).
Groundhogs, also known as woodchucks, are marmots; their scientific name is Marmota monax.
While I enjoy seeing them, my wife is not so happy that they are eating up the garden.
When the babies get a little older, we'll try to trap them with a live trap and relocate them.
