oh my goodness... Happy Groundhogs Day to you! I can't wait to see what the groundhog will predict for this upcoming weather! : ) Yay your picture makes me smile and... I suddenly want a soft pretzel.. oh my. I hope you have a lovely day and a wonderful weather ahead for you! : )
yay! I love Phil! haha I always love seeing them wear those silk top hats they look so professional! There are groundhogs all over. Where I usually go upstate New York camping I see so many groundhogs just going around eating grass its so cute. Once I saw these two groundhog couple by my cabin every night eating together it was adorable! ( I have pictures too if you want to see. ) Oh Depending where you live in the US the groundhog might say different weather predictions. I have a groundhog in my town and mine said more winter... Phil said early spring. So we'll just have to see : ) I like winter but hope spring comes too. I've decided and I'm making a trip later to get a soft pretzel! I'm excited but I wish groundhogs can come eat the pretzel with me : )
oh no you're not alone when I was younger I thought there was only groundhog, Phil. But Pennsylvania Phil is the most popular main groundhog. So everyone mentions Phil (groundhog celebrity! haha) I'm not sure how many there are... I think there might be at least 1 for each state or town? haha I'm curious now I want to know about the Groundhogs! here are two pictures of these two groundhogs that I saw on my camping vacation in upstate NY. They would come out of the woods each evening eating their grass dinners: [link] [link] I was about 6 feet 72inches /(182.9 cm) away from them. I could easily just walk up and pet them but they would have ran away so I just took pictures and enjoyed them nom noming on the grass. :3 I wish I could have pet them too! I sometimes see groundhogs here but not too often... I live in the lower area of NY (very close to NYC) so theres some animals but not a super lot like upstate NY Oh hey did you know Groundhogs have more than one name. Some people call them Woodchucks others call them whistle pigs! It's funny because I didn't know this until the same year I went camping and saw the two groundhogs haha Groundhogs have so many names!
Thank you for showing me the pictures! soooo CUTE! Did you take the picture in the spring or summer? they were slim, I thought they might be summer pelage. I didn't know that name, it's so funny! I am so interested in everything you tell me always.
I've never seen groundhogs except a picture actually, because they haven't lived in Japan. Some years ago, I went to Ueno zoo in Tokyo (It has Mongolian marmots) but they hid their nest themselves, so I could not see them. But many prairie dogs appeared at that time, so my broken heart was soothed.
My partner visited town of Poughkeepsie at business trip in last year. Is there a groundhog in that area?
Yes these pictures were taken in the summer July 2008 (a while ago ) Aw I'm glad you like the things I saw I enjoy talking to you Oh thats right I forgot Groundhogs are also called Marmots! I love that name haha
Aw I'd love to see prairie dogs they're cute! Oh I recently found out about Ōkunoshima ... I saw pictures of many rabbits on the island. Have you been there? Is it true? If I ever get to visit I must visit this island! Oh I pass Poughkeepsie on my road trip to my camping area. But I've never stopped in that town. I'm not sure which animals are in poughkeepsie so I looked it up just now. They seem to have groundhogs and I'm not sure if they have an official groundhog to celebrate groundhogs day... But I bet they do in the town I feel like a lot of the states even in the small town areas they all must have some sort of groundhog (otherwise its sad no big cute groundhogs!) I was curious so I looked up which are some of the main popular groundhogs... I found these guys : )There is: Punxsutawney Phil, Dunkirk Dave, Shubenacadie Sam, Wiarton Willie, General Beauregard Lee, Peewee the Woodchuck and Staten Island Chuck. thats all I really know about the groundhogs for now. I really want to hold one they look like big squish piles like pudding! oh gosh... all the animals... talking so much about animals I think I should draw some now haha so cute
How many groundhogs have names! General Beauregard Lee is cool. I didn't know that many popular groundhogs live in various places, I want to meet all them! Thank you for telling me that!
In this summer, my partner may long stay in poughkeepsie again, I hope he meets groundhogs!(I want him to take a picture )
Yes! Ōkunoshima is popular island, a lot of rabbit-lover visited there. But I never been in there. XD Ōkunoshima is difficult to go there, because the ferry of transfer are very few. And the train come in only one per an hour in the station nearest port Recently tourists who visited this island are increasing, so I guess the ferry and train too, when you visit.^^
Miya-jima where many deer live in is to the west from Ōkunoshima, so I have been to there long ago. The deer were pulling travelers' bags, and got Shika-senbei which a rice cracker for them. They are so cute! You should visit there, too!
