A groundhog, often called a woodchuck, was a small mammalian creature.[2]


Groundhogs were able to gnaw through wood and trees at a quick rate. They were fairly common.[2]

Woodchucks were somewhat dexterous and were good at hiding, moving silently, and listening. They also had a strong sense of smell.[1]


The little animals were of no threat to humans. Woodchuck pelts were worth about 1 gp each.[2] They were sometimes used as familiars, particularly by gnomes. The red meat of such critters made up a large portion of the diet of aurumvoraxes.[3]

Groundhogs were known to dwell in Cormanthor[3] and Amn[4] in the continent Faerûn on Toril, as well as on Chandos.[5]
