Well, it’s Groundhog Day … again. 🐹

The first official Groundhog Day took place in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, on Feb 2, 1886. We still celebrate this day 130 years later, but did you know that groundhogs are active mostly at dawn and dusk. They’re good swimmers and tree climbers, and when alarmed, they use a high pitched whistle to warn the colony.
