Groundhogs are herbivores; eating a variety of green plants and flowers.
Groundhogs like almost any type of green plant imaginable! They eat soybeans, grasses, herbs, flowers green stems, clover, leaves, and alfalfa, though some of their favorites include melons, peas and carrots, cucumbers, beans, and corn. Believe it or not, they've even been known to climb into trees for apples, nuts and pears!
