Common Name: Woodchuck
Scientific Name: Marmota monax
Woodchucks and whistle pigs are different names for the same animal. There doesn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason as to why different parts of the continent use different names but no matter which name you choose to use this rodent, welcomed or not, has become an very common resident in yards and gardens across North America.
