Hi Groundhog at Lake George

I photographed this groundhog near the forest at Lake George USA today. Prof. Google has lots of interesting facts about them. They hibernate in winter for about 150 days during which time their heartbeat drops from about about 80 to 5 per minute and their breathing from from about both 16 breaths per minute to 2. And, their body temperature drops from about 99F. to 37F. Amazing.
