Groundhog (Marmota monax)

“The groundhog is worshipped by modern-day cults that believe the unassuming woodland creature possesses the ability to manipulate weather.”

“As with most superstitions, this belief is misguided and not based in science.”

“Research has repeatedly shown that the groundhog’s control of the weather is merely incidental to its eerie powers over space and time. ”
