    Born and raised in Pennsylvania, this has always cracked me up!! This little guy doesn't see his shadow, he sees hundreds of people snapping pics of him with cameras, cell phones, lots of people, and a really tall bearded dude in a big black hat!! Of course he runs back in...not from a shadow, from fear!!😆😂😆😂😉💖

    There's more to Phil than just on Groundhog's Day. Phil doesn't live in the den that he is taken from. From what I understand he actually lives in a climate control building with a window and sometimes can be seen on other days. He is secretly place in the den sometime before Groundhog's Day.... he has caretakers around the clock that watch over and care for him year round. Last I heard the take Phil on tour for a learning experience about groundhogs..

      @skiersexcuse Wow, poor little Phil. Maybe they insulate his log hutch so he doesn't hear anything before they thrust him out into the cold, chilly air. He really handles it quite well all told, but as you said, maybe he's sedated. Or maybe they do regular training so he gets used to all that hubbaloo. If it were Cat Day and they pulled a kitty out of the hutch to see if he/she saw their shadow, whew, would that get right rowdy in a hot minute! I can't imagine my cats taking one stinkin' minute of that garbage and the men in the top hats would be bleeding all over the place and crying for mercy! 🤣🤣 Phil must be incredibly outgoing and mellow. I do love Groundhog Day though, but I do feel rather guilty about what we all put Phil through to have our fun.

      @Benjamin Cantrell actually Phil doesn't live in the den that he is taken from. From what I understand he lives in a building that has a window and can be viewed on other days. He has around the clock caretakers that watch and care for him year round. Last I heard the caretakers take Phil on tour and is shown off as a learning tool about groundhogs etc..

    • Benjamin Cantrell
      Benjamin Cantrell Ай бұрын +4

      I feel that. It’s a lot of stimulation for one groundhog with all the people and cameras. He’s probably been living in that little den for a while so he won’t freak out when being taken out. Unfortunately, animals (including humans) taken out of their natural habitat often go into a freeze or fawn state (nervous system responses to threat like fight or flight) to adapt to a situation where there are constant and unavoidable stressors. So groundhog self is probably pretty traumatized deep down and also wouldn’t be able to survive out in the wild anymore.

    What do they mean when they say it "saw it's shadow"? Does the groundhog have to explicitly _look_ at it's shadow, or is it just a matter of whether or not it casts a shadow?

      Pretty assertive for someone who is largely wrong on the subject. All this means is that you live in a temperate latitude in the northern hemisphere. I'm guessing somewhere between 38° N to 41° N. Probably Michigan because they're pretty ignorant and don't go anywhere else. Anyway... Areas on Earth with four seasons currently exist between 23.5° and 66.5° North and South. Depending on where you are geographically, you may only experience two or three seasons in that range. The torrid zone between 23.5° North and South generally has two seasons depending on proximity to the oceans and large land expanses. They are generally the wet and dry seasons. When you get towards the poles or polar regions, the two seasons are primarily light and dark. So no. There aren't four evenly spaced seasons regardless of calendar dates. If they were 90 days each that would leave five calendar days unaccounted for not including leap years. The span of the seasons where there are four fluctuates between 89 and 94 days depending on the year and latitudes. I'd get into the 6 season model but, you probably need a nap by now.

      Actually Phil really doesn't live in the den that he is taken from. He really lives in a climate control building with a window and can be viewed on other days. He has caretakers around the clock that watch over and care for him year round. He is actually placed in the den secretly sometime before Groundhog's Day. So in reality there is no other groundhog that is better treated and cared for than Phil. In the society that cares for Phil it is one of the highest honors and a prelivage to care for Phil.
