Woodchucks, also knows as groundhogs, are a large rodent that can be found in many parts of Alaska. They live in burrows that are usually located in bushy or forested areas. Woodchucks are herbivores and can survive in both urban and natural environments. They are great swimmers and tree climbers but usually only do these activities if threatened. They have sharp claws and teeth that are their primary defense in the event of an attack on their burrow, but overall they are a pretty even tempered animal
