    I think a Gopher is in the Rodent family.The term gopher as it is commonly used does not relate to any one species, but is a generic term used to describe any of several small burrowing rodents endemic to North America, including the pocket gopher, also called true gophers.

    The groundhog, also known as a woodchuck, or in some areas as a land-beaver, is a rodent of the family Sciuridae, belonging to the group of large ground squirrels known as marmots.Woodchuck size is smaller than gophers.
