What the...???

OK, do I have any nature buffs as readers? Can anyone identify the furry new neighbor I discovered eating grass shoots and acorns in my yard?

Ground hog? Gopher? Wombat? He was pretty fearless and didn't seem to mind me one bit. I was able to walk up quite close to him.

do i look like a zoologist? LOL
so what are you going to do with your furry friend?
I go with woodchuck. Tyler should be reciting "How much wood can a woodchuck chuck..." I don't even know what woodchucks eat, but whatever it is, it's neat to see the picture. Margo

OMG!!!! DO NOT GO NEAR IT!!!! That is obviously a rabid tasmanian devil....

OK, just kidding. Yeah, it is a small groundhog. They are harmless.

This is a very young groundhog/gopher. They are very gentle and he will not hurt you. He may dig a big hole in your yard, but he will be fun to watch going in and out of his den.
