Groundhogs Around the World: Chuckles

Name: Chuckles
Animal Type: Groundhog
Location: Manchester, Connecticut, United States
Description: Chuckles is the official groundhog of the state of Connecticut and resides at the Lutz Children's Museum in Manchester. Since at least the mid 1990s Chuckles has been forecasting the weather in a ceremony attended by hundreds of families and children. Chuckles goes outside and checks for his shadow, then comes in to report what he saw, or didn't. Only the mayor can translate for the groundhog. During the event the troubadour sings a special song called "Chuckles is our Groundhog", kids make groundhog crafts, and elected officials address the crowd. There have been many Chuckles throughout the years and each one is properly sworn into office by a state official (Governor, Lt. Governor, or Superior Court Judge). Chuckles X passed away in October of 2020. The search is on for Chuckles XI.
