Groundhog Marmot Mom 13"
You might think our Hansa Marmot Groundhog stuffed animal will appear on February 2nd to tell us if spring is around the corner...but our groundhog would rather be with you everyday! In a standing position, this momma has an inquisitive look to her. With a white chest, a sweet little nose covered with whiskers and gentle paws waiting for a hug, she will be very difficult to put down.
According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day, then the spring season will arrive early, some time before the vernal equinox; if it is sunny, the groundhog will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its den, and winter weather will persist for six more weeks The groundhog can be found in Europe, North America, and Asia. It is characterized by a blunt snout, short ears, a short bushy tail, and short legs. Groundhogs live in burrows and hibernate during the winter. They feed on vegetation and are sometimes destructive to cultivated crops. The cry of the marmot sounds like a shrill whistle.
Exactly what I was looking for - Realistic - What a great representation for the one I saw in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
Hello Hansa Toy Store, I wanted to let you all know that the Mama Groundhog that I purchased is absolutely as lifelike as the real one in our backyard. The attention to the detail on her is so realistic, she even fooled our little Yorkie, and he is 12 years old. I am so glad that I picked this Mama Groundhog from your online catalog. Thanks Hansa!
The product is great but it has now cost me 75 ($51 for toy, $41 for delivery and 15 import VAT). I would be very reluctant to make another purchase.
