Don’t Be Afraid of Your Shadow!February 8th, 2011 at 7:01 am by Katie Collett under 10 On Your Side, News, Personalities
In one of our recent Hometown Hot Spots segments, I had the privilege of meeting the one and only groundhog (woodchuck) you can see up close and personal in Hampton Roads! The groundhog lives on the land of the Virginia Living Museum in Newport News.
As my photographer, LV, and I learned, groundhogs aren’t exactly the easiest animal to shoot video of! He wanted to run everywhere (and so did the groundhog)!
This adorable animal starred in the VA Living Museum’s “Groundhog Night.” There were activities and games for kids and their parents and of course, everyone got to see the star of the show eat and mingle with the crowd!
It’s just one of many fun and educational events the VA Living Museum has on a regular basis.
We learned (and so did the kids!) the groundhog will eat nuts, carrots, and other veggies. Be sure to head on out and pay the groundhog a visit! He might be a bit sleepy because I’m told this is his hibernation time, but you might get lucky!
