Are you asking because you have these in your home? I hope not since they are of the rodent family. They are typically ground squirrels living in mountainous regions but you can also call a groundhog a marmot too. Don’t worry, if they are in your home they are looking for a way out. They tend to live in burrows and if it’s wintertime, they are hibernating. Don’t worry about them raiding your refrigerator, they prefer grasses, mosses and roots for dinner.
