Many of Kentucky's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies.

Shively Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is A Groundhog's Mating Habits, When Do They Have Babies, How Do They Raise Their Young?

Groundhog is well known as a short-legged rodent that is popularly found in North America. Life of a groundhog baby begins from a burrow that is created by his mother; it often has many entry and exit points and can have a long length below the ground. The pregnant mother takes a long time to build cozy dens for the baby so that it can stay comfortably inside. The soft grasses are used to make the area more suitable for the baby. Experts say that groundhog burrows can have a long length; mostly up to 80 feet where the birthing chamber use to have a length around 3 times higher than the total length of mother groundhog. These burrows ensure proper warmth to inside for the baby so that it can enjoy favorable conditions for growth.

Studies reveal that mother groundhog can give birth to almost 10 babies at a time; however, in most cases, it has 3 to 6 babies in common. These babies are called as kits or pups; sometimes they are also named as cubs. The time when the baby groundhog grows fully, it is named as whistle pig or the more popular named as a woodchuck. You can observe a newborn groundhog baby in pink color on his body, and it is usually completely hairless. The maximum size of a newborn baby can be somewhere around the size of a matchbox. Their ears are found to be folded with open eyelids. Right after birth, these pups are completely dependent on their mother for food, and they keep on drinking mother's milk for at least 3 weeks. After 44 days of their life; the baby groundhogs become able to survive without mother's milk and can consume other things as well.

The groundhog mating season usually starts from the month of February; right after the time when the groundhogs come out of hibernation. The male start searching for a suitable female to breed and they continue mating till spring season. After following a gestation period of around 32 days, female groundhog gives birth to the babies. The groundhog mother takes full responsibility of her babies for first 42 days after birth. The mothers create birthing dens for young babies so that they can live comfortably during first few weeks of their life. Once the babies become independent, they start moving around freely to search their own food.

Groundhogs are very protective towards their babies; while providing food, they also ensure them proper care from predators around. The mothers make all efforts to ensure high survival rate for their babies. These creatures feed on grass, vegetables, and fruits around. Many homeowners in the United States are in trouble due to frequent attacks of groundhogs on their property. If you are also living in groundhog affected area, it is good to take help from professional animal removal company to get rid of them on time.
