Norfolk wildlife control tip of the month:

About Groundhog: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior

Groundhog is a very interesting animal. Their name means “little armored one” in Spanish and that is a very accurate description of them. Some of them can be very little (13-15 centimeters), but some species can grow up to 54 kilograms and be 150 centimeters long. An average Norfolk animal control digging rodent is about 75 centimeters long and all of them have a so called armor, or bands on their back. The armor is actually a dermal bone covered in scales, while underneath they have soft skin and fur. Their armor is on the back, while the stomach is exposed. They can be red, black, pink, grey or yellow and some of them can have up to 100 teeth. They populate North and South America and are very widespread in Paraguay. Their natural Norfolk pest control habitat is moist soil which they dig into in search for food. They live around creeks, rivers and streams where they can find a lot of food. Their diet varies from species to species, but it’s mostly insects, ants and other invertebrates. They are omnivores, so they will eat everything, even dead animals they find. Some of the Norfolk wildlife removal species even specialize in one particular food source, like ants or termites.

Their legs are small, but they can be very fast. An digging rodent can run up to 30 miles per hour. Predators that hunt them are wildcats, bears, cougars and wolves. Their armor can be a useful defense, but they mostly rely on speed when facing enemies, or on digging. Some of them can ever roll into a ball when facing a predator, or jump. They can even dive for as long as 6 minutes, which enables them to cross bodies of water easily. Their sense of smell is very sharp, which makes up for their poor eyesight. They live in Norfolk animal trapping burrows and are solitary creatures, they prefer living alone. They spend up to 16 hours in burrows a day, sleeping, and rest of the time they are in search for food. When they are born, they have a very soft skin, but it hardens after a few weeks. Mother gives birth to one to 12 young, but there are mostly four of them, depending on the Norfolk exterminator species. After birth they remain in the burrow for a few months, feeding on their mother’s milk. They become mature very fast, from nine to 12 months. Their lifespan is from four to 30 years.
