This Critter Calls it Home



More shots from our mini-vacation!
This fence followed a path that meandered from the parking lot behind our hotel, down to a fountain at the bottom of the hill.  The owners of the place really did a great job with the landscaping.  You can't tell by my camera views, but that crepe myrtle in the center of the bottom photo was huge!  I was hoping to catch sight of a few birds, but the only creature we saw was this one...


(Now that I am home and can google) ...
I'm guessing it's a groundhog. Not sure though.  Does anyone know?  He looks like he has some serious health problems...I'm wondering if he's been swimming in the chlorine fountain one too many times?

  1. That would be my guess too! Is he tame?

  2. That's a beautiful garden! Most groundhogs don't live in such luxury. :-)

  9. Beautiful grounds and gardens. The fence is unique and adds to the beauty of the area. Mr. Groundhog's tail looks a little frazzled. :)

  15. It is beautiful place and I love the crepe myrtle. I am sure that groundhog can terrorize that garden if it is like the critters I have in my yard. Lovely photos, have a great weekend!

  16. Sounds like you enjoyed your trip to Arkansas.. We love that state... Did you travel on Scenic Highway 7???? Great mountains there!!

    YES--that is definitely a groundhog --or some people call it a woodchuck...

    Great pictures.
    Hugs,

  17. Looks too overweight for a squirrel and has a gifferent snout...but I've never seen a groundhog...it sure looks like it has taken up residence!

  18. Pretty garden....and cool critter find. It looks like a Woodchuck. My Dad was drinking beer with his beer drinking friend in Wisconsin on the porch and saw the same critter......and we did research. I wasn't drinking beer. But my guess is Woodchuck:)
