An eccletic set of links to other "marmutia" on the web...

The International Marmot Network web site is currently being constructed in France. When finished, it will have information in English, French, Italian, and Russian. Currently it houses the most complete marmot bibliography as well as some outstanding photos and maps.


By far the most has been written about groundhogs. For instance, there's plenty of groundhog day information, photographs and t-shirts of neighborhood hogs, and other commerical stuff to keep you going!

There are several home pages put together by the town and/or residents of Punxsutawney; they move around a bit so try searching for them. Punxsutawney is not the only place where groundhogs are worshipped, nor is Phil the only weather prognosticator. In the Canadian town of Wiarton on the Bruce Penninsula of Lake Huron lives Wiarton Willie, an albino groundhog! The town's got, among other things, a large white statue of their famous albino groundhog. And, Sun Prairie, Wisconsin logs in with Jimmy, the groundhog.

You know how the web is. There used to be an on-line game Hit The Groundhog, but it trundled away recently. You still might want to check out this groundhog recipe.

'Chucks aren't just for eatin' any more! Did you know that in Vermont, a woodchuck is a local name for a "redneck"!?
