Groundhog

Marmota monax

Description:

At least a foot and a half long with a stout body. Has a thick coat of fur, small round ears, long claws. Saw his large, but somewhat worn teeth when he yawned. https://youtu.be/2JpERWlhOBo

Habitat:

This particular one is living under my garden shed. I only found one burrow hole, but figure there's another one somewhere. Perhaps on the other side of our fenced-in yard. Residential with wilderness areas close by.

Notes:

Finally saw the tenant that's been occupying the space under our shed. Came out around 8am and hung out for awhile. Not sure if the heat or boredom brought him out.
