Groundhogs, woodchucks and nutrias
The picture in Tuesday's Freeze Frame titled "Harvey's last day" is of a nutria rat not a groundhog. Groundhogs or woodchuck's have a very short tail, coarse fur and do not have webbed feet. Both are numerous in Lowndes County but the nutria is a water animal that gets out on land only to feed on grasses or anything green and growing. Groundhogs compete with the nutria for food, but he is strictly a land animal.
