The woodchuck, also called marmot or groundhog, is the largest member of the Sciuridae family. The name woodchuck comes from the Cree Indian word wuchak. Woodchucks are ground dwelling herbivores and are found in much of the eastern United States, north through Canada and into Alaska. The bones (calcium) have been stained with Alizarin Red, (hyaline).


The cartilage has been stained with Alcian Blue (see end of bones, trachea, larynx), cleared in potassium hydroxide solutions and placed into 100% Glycerine.
