Facts About Chipmunks
A chipmunks’ length from head to toes is 5-7 inches and their tails are generally 3 to 4 inches in length. They weigh 2 to 5 ounces and are reddish-brown with one white stripe on each side that is bordered in black.
Chipmunks are not shy and are known to make their homes near residential structures. Even though it is a good climber, the chipmunk spends little time in trees. It forages the ground in its territory and makes its nest underground, beneath rocks, fallen logs, or even sheds.
Their omnivorous diet consists of grain, nuts, birds’ eggs, fungi, worms, and insects. At the beginning of autumn, many species of chipmunk begin to stockpile these goods in their burrows, for winter.
Chipmunks have 2 litters per year of approximately 4 young, one in Spring, the second in the Summer to early Fall.
