Chipmunks have reddish-brown fur on their back and sides and white fur on their stomach. They have two white stripes bordered by black on their sides and one black stripe on the center of their back. The chipmunk has light stripes above and below its eyes and it has pouched cheeks that it uses to store and carry food.
Chipmunks live in open deciduous forests and at the edges of woodlands. It can also be found in bushy areas and in rocky areas like walls near houses and other buildings.
This cute little Chipmunk is one of a few dozen or so, that reside at the same location on this planet as I do. They are very energetic and entertaining to watch.
