Just saw this thing scamper across the driveway and into the neighbor's yard. I had to really scoot to grab this photo (cropped from a large zoom shot). I've not seen anything like it before. What is it?

Did you ever see the movie Groundhog Day? I think that is what it is. They aren't all as fat as the one in the movie.

From all the images I've been looking at I think it might be a groundhog. Didn't know we had those here in NC and have never seen one in the wild before. Keep the responses coming until we're sure! I should have titled the post "Mystery of the Day" to make it more fun.

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

I agree, most likely a groundhog (woodchuck).
