Mating and Reproduction

Groundhogs breed around March or April after they emerge from hibernation. Males may travel long distances looking for a mate, sometimes at night. They will have somewhere between 2 to 6 young that are born hairless and stay with their mother until June-July. Then they leave to find their own homes, either by digging or occupying abandoned dens. Groundhogs can use the same den for several seasons—they maintain it and keep it clean all this time.
