The Fame of the Yearly Marmot
This cute little furry marmot enjoys many names, also known as a ground squirrel, a woodchuck, and famously every Feb 2nd he's known as a groundhog.
Punxsutawney Phil is most closely related to squirrels and can be found all over the US.
"While the reported origins of Groundhog Day are many, the concept is thought to be linked to the Germanic tradition of Candlemas Day, a Christian feast day. According to the folklore, a sunny Candlemas Day means a longer winter.

Groundhogs were plentiful in the new world when settlers came from Europe, however badgers and hedgehogs were not.
