    Wow, I've never seen a blonde one before. All the woodchucks I've seen are brown. Cute little guy.

    He's the first blonde chuck I've ever seen. All the others (plenty to chose from) around here are the normal color. Maybe it is a she but I've never seen babies with it. It has been around for a few years now but DH just cut brush in that field so I have a better chance to get pics of it.

    Neat! I've only seen a couple that light. Seems to be something of a rarity. Around here anyways. I've heard of albino groundhogs but I've never seen one myself.

    Ah, but is it a true blonde...ask it what the capital of Wyoming is. If it answers, "W", then it's a natural blonde!

    That is a "Blond Speckled Beaver" mostly found in the Southern tier/Finger Lakes area of NYS. Though rarely seen it is said that over 1500 reside in Ny and northern PA area. They enjoy pina colada's and walks in the sand.
