I don’t actually have any photos of a groundhog. However, I do have one of some rock hyrax, which look similar. Strangely though, they are more closely related to elephants and manatees (source). When we were on Table Mountain in South Africa there were lots of these little guys just chilling out right on the edge of the 1km drop.
P.S. Groundhog forecast calls for an early spring!
If you enjoy my photographs please consider making a purchase. All of the proceeds from the sale will go directly to help support our friends volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa which is a great organization really making a difference in the community. Every little bit makes a difference, even a small digital download for your desktop!
