Go nose-to-nose with opossums, owls, snakes and more
Charlotte's most famous groundhog emerged from her burrow early this morning to make her annual weather forecast for the region.
Queen Charlotte saw her shadow, meaning six more weeks of winter.
Discovery Place Nature's resident groundhog made her royal Groundhog Day proclamation at an invitation-only ceremony before the Museum opened to the public.
