Happy Groundhog Day!

This Saturday, February 2, one little rodent will be thrust into the spotlight and given his annual 15 minutes of fame. Unlike lions, tigers and many other mammals, groundhogs are widely thought of as garden pests, rather than interesting creatures.

Yet one day each year, groundhogs are given some respect. On February 2, Punxatawney Phil (and other weather-forecasting groundhogs around the country) is expected to predict the future. Will he see his shadow, banishing us to 6 more weeks of frigid weather? Or will the little guy look down and see nothing but the ground, giving us hope for sunshine and warmth in the weeks to come?

No matter what Phil predicts on Saturday, this is his time to shine. With that in mind, here are some little-known facts about the elusive rodent.
