How Much Wood A Baby Woodchuck Chucks: Everday Magic, Day 327

Updated: Oct 2, 2023

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?
