Groundhog men are animal people variants of the common groundhog who can be found in savage temperate grasslands. They spawn in groups of 1-5 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves. In terms of size, they are a little over half the weight of the average dwarf.

Like other savage animal people, they can join civilizations, become historical figures, appear as visitors and be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves like groundhog men for their ability to burrow.

May sometimes get cursed to repeat the same days over and over.
