It’s not only groundhogs that are afraid of their own shadows.
A little girl has become a social media star and was even featured on the "Today" show after her father Mike Jacobs posted a video to Facebook of her running screaming from her shadow.
As Jacobs warns in his post (“Wait for it...”) his daughter at first seems just cranky as she starts to wander around a parking lot. But she suddenly freaks out when she sees her shadow and can’t get away from it, eventually stumbling to the ground.
The video has earned more than 400,000 shares in less than 24 hours.
