The bros go off searching for the rare mineral, but find the search difficult until they stumble upon a rattlesnake.

The bros wonder if the ground hog has abilities to make a Creature Power Suit, but Aviva says she’s sure these cute little groundhogs have some hidden super powers and she decides to test this suit out herself. It turns out that one of the hidden powers of the groundhog is their ability to hibernate, and the bros have to figure out what causes Groundhogs to emerge from their burrows as they try to rescue Aviva from a deep winter sleep that her Ground Hog Power Suit has put her into.
