Did you know that the marmot or groundhogs are related to squirrels.
Pls. read this
They're related to squirrels.
Groundhogs (Marmota monax) are a type of rodent known as a marmot, and marmots are closely related to squirrels. "They are giant ground squirrels is what they are," says Richard Thorington, curator of mammals at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C.

What's more, groundhogs have an extensive range and can be found all over North America.

Well his body and face look different from squirrels, he’s a cute one, I agree. As long as he doesn’t chew the cable lines he can be my friend!
