I was watching the Discovery Channel the other day and I was watching this thing about groundhogs. It was very intriguing and I think they are ever so cute as well. I now want one as a pet. The probably mentioned in the program what their life expectancy is, but I can't recall now. Obviously it would not be exposed to predators of any kind, and I expect quite a few groundhogs die from being eaten. Does anyone quite know how old groundhogs would become when kept as pets?
