Wikipedia article

This article is about an older version of DF.
A large, round, lowland rodent. It lives in burrows in the ground and ventures out to eat.

Groundhogs are small, mostly herbivorous creatures. They often appear in small groups in temperate flat areas.

Groundhogs don't produce much meat when butchered. With a very little pet value of 50, they still may be worth more to you dead than alive. An Animal trainer must be present in order to tame them. Unclaimed tame groundhogs will require a pasture.

Some humans think these little fuzzy creatures can predict the arrival of spring by seeing of its shadow. Most dwarves discredit this, but with almost 100% Predictability, some humans, and a few dwarves will worship them, especially if the object of worship is named Phil.
