WHAT ARE CHIPMUNKS?

Chipmunks are small rodents with reddish-brown fur with white and black stripes along their face, back, and tail. They are well known for their chubby cheeks, lighting fast movements, and burrowing habits. Their underground dens consist of multiple chambers and tunnels that can stretch out for 20-30 feet. Chipmunks love nuts, seeds, and berries and will tear up gardens looking for these foods. Chipmunks are about 6-10 inches long and typically weigh around 1-5 ounces.
