Gophers and Groundhogs

The smaller gopher and the larger groundhog are burrowing members of the numerous, successful order of rodents. Both are known for their extensive underground tunnels, which may support thousands of sociable gophers and far less of the more solitary groundhog. Typical contributors seek answers to gopher and groundhog defensive behaviors, environmental roles in opening up air passageways underground and sharing underground homes with other wildlife, geographic ranges, representations in popular culture, survival threats, and troubled interactions with people.

Did the groundhog see its shadow yesterday?

In 2020, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow. If he's to be believed, that means we'll have an early spring this year, but you must remember that Punxsutawney Phil isn't a very good predictor. From 2008 to 2018, he got it right a measly 40 percent of the time.

Yes, but don't count on what the groundhog predicted-- his reputation for accuracy isn't very good. The tradition of Groundhog Day goes back to a publicity stunt that first took place in 1886. Since then, "Punxsutawney Phil" has made 131 predictions, but they proved correct only 39% of the time.
