A family of woodchucks is living under my mother-in-law's deck, and so my mom -- visiting for Daniel's graduation -- and I pulled up chairs to the door to watch Woodchuck TV. Here's what we learned:
Woodchucks do eat wood. The babies loved snacking on woodchips.
Babies are adventurous and not seasoned enough to be afraid of humans. Their mother, thankfully, is.
If you want to see the woodchucks while the mom is seeing you, you can’t move or breathe audibly. In other words, be like a statue.
Woodchucks are ecstatic to play underneath and around Toyota Siennas from bygone eras. They especially find the mud on the tires intriguing.
Each baby, one at a time, bites at the mom’s mouth. Teeth-cleaning?
Babies are big. Moms are bigger.
Do these guys have cute hands or what?
