      Beautiful brown woodchuck...I love his “buck-teeth”.
      He is sitting on his hinds looking around, just like groundhog!
      How does it go? “How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?”
      Sorry, couldn’t help myself!

      What a strange little creature! I love his colour, it's such a lovely shade of wine that can look black or brown too. His pose is adorable, its the perfect pose seen in such an inquisitive little creature(He looks like he's just spotted something!)
      Just wondering are these creatures called Groundhogs? And is this near Groundhog day? I just ask because we don't have them where I live!

      Lol Kevin we often think alike with our glass animals lately! I'm sure you saw this also came in a slag glass brown, but I thought the transparent brown looked more like the real animal. However, SO difficult to photograph, even with intense indoor lighting he came out black, and in sunlight it's also pretty dark, thanks for the super comment

      Thanks Karen I love to wear the color brown esp at this time of year, great idea and cool comment :)

      Ken thank you for seeing the cute here, I agree & am glad to find a new animal to show for a change, appreciate the kind compliment

      Thanks Eileen, that is the first thing I noticed on this guy, his adorable buck teeth lol! That is such a great rhyme memory, one of those tongue twisters, and you're right a woodchuck & groundhog are the same animal! Lovely compliments as always

      Lauren you are absolutely right here, a woodchuck is the same as groundhog, which we make a big deal about here every Feb 2, supposedly they predict the winter duration but are often wrong I'm afraid. I called this woodchuck or gopher as those were its original names from Imperial Glass. Yes he is rather alert looking, love your always wonderful comment

      Thomas my smile giver, wasn't that a cute school tongue twister, I think it ends "he would chuck what wood a woodchuck would chuck if a woodchuck COULD chuck wood." Funny the things you remember, thanks for the super reminder!

      Such a cutie! Don’t know that I’ve seen a glass gopher before. So unique

      Thanks MrsT for the super compliment and love, I know, never saw one of these burrowing guys before myself, and just happened upon this one, he reminds me of the gopher in Caddyshack lol!

      Thank you iggy & KinkiPlz for the kind love, very glad you liked this little guy

      LOL, yeah I have mine on a window ledge and it just casts a dark shadow on my dining room floor. Not a great color for a color junkie...

      I know Kevin, you would think the clear brown glass would be easy to photograph but they must've added black in the glass (Viking did that alot too). He's a cutie anyway right, great facial features

      Sean I am always grateful for the kind love and support, thank you so much
