The Groundhog is a rodent. It is also called a woodchuck. It belongs to the group of ground squirrels. Those squirrels are also known as marmots. The animal may also be called Woodchuck, or Whistlepig. Groundhogs dig tunnels and live underground.
Groundhog holes, called burrows, are easy to recognize; they are holes, about 9inch (inches) (23 cm (centimetres)) wide which usually have large piles of dirt and rocks at the entrance. Every single hole may have tunnels that lead to as many as ten other holes, the tunnels are very large and can have chambers, like rooms, in them. Groundhogs can make their homes under trees, around buildings and in open fields.
Groundhogs are found only in North America, from Canada down to the southern United States. They like woodland areas that bump up against more open areas. They dig burrows that can be 6 feet (1.8 meters) deep, and 20 feet (6 m) wide.
These underground homes can also have two to a dozen entrances, according to the National Wildlife Federation.
These rodents are herbivores, which means they eat vegetation. A groundhog’s diet can include fruit, plants, tree bark and grasses.
Steps To Draw A Groundhog
Follow the steps below to easily draw a groundhog step by step.
We are starting by drawing an oval like shape for drawing the groundhog’s head and drawing two straight lines in the right and left sides for the body part as like below in the image. ( Roughly )
Now, draw the vertical half-circle in the sides of the head and for drawing the groundhog’s hand, draw two straight lines on each side(left and right sides) for drawing arms, draw according to it. ( Roughly )
Now, art the shape of the groundhog head according to the drawing and after that draw zig-zag lines for the hair in the top of the head and in the cheeks(right and left side) and draw(letter U) like shape for the chin of the groundhog as shown in the drawing below. ( Fairly )
Similarly, now draw two curves on each side(right and left) for drawing the hands of the groundhog with four fingers on it, drawing according to the image below. ( Fairly )
Then, now from the hands draw a small curve line facing downward and draw same in another side also and draw(letter U) in the stomach and draw(letter U) up-side-down, draw as drawn below. ( Fairly )
Similarly, now draw a small(letter U) shape in the top right side for drawing the ear of the groundhog and inside that draw another (letter U)shape inside the ear and repeat the same step for drawing the left ear and draw(letter U)shape upside-down, draw as shown in the drawing below. ( Fairly )
After that, now draw small curved lines for drawing the ground and it should also touch the hands as shown in the image below. ( Fairly )
Now, draw the ground or hole part. And also draw some circles like the mud below.
Similarly, now erase the rough lines which we have drawn in earlier steps (Step 1 & 2).
Now in this step, we gonna draw a groundhog’s face so by taking the reference of step 9 draw a face of groundhog as in the image below. Draw a groundhog nose, teeth and a mouth as in the image below.
In the final step, we are drawing groundhog eyes and eyebrows. Draw an oval type of eyes and inner again draw another oval and finally draw an oval shaped fully blacked eyeball. Also, don’t forget to draw groundhog eyebrows at the top as in the image below. After this, we goona colour our cute groundog in the next step.
Colouring a Groundhog
After the drawing of the cute groundhog is completed we move forward with colouring the groundhog. For colouring, we had chosen some basic colours. You can fill colour according to our wish too.

Final Image of Groundhog
After colouring, we get a cute groundhog. Here we learn to draw a groundhog out of its hole. You can use a pencil colour(We made it digital). Alternatively, you even can change colours while colouring.
Finally, we draw a cute groundhog and colour it beautifully. I hope you find our tutorial easy.
