chipmunk log

Along a mountain ridge in Colorado, view life on the log with three species of chipmunks, two species of squirrel, and the occasional fox, deer, bear, antelope, and various bird species. Recognized for their pudgy cheeks, big glossy eyes, striped fur and bushy tails, Chipmunks are the smallest members of the squirrel family. They feed on insects, nuts, berries, seeds and grains, generally gathering food in areas with rocks and logs so they can hide from predators like hawks, foxes, coyotes, weasels and snakes. Chipmunks hibernate, but instead of storing fat, they stuff food into their cheek pouches and carry the food to their burrows to store it for the winter. 

All but one of the 25 chipmunk species are found in North America. Colorado chipmunks are large and reddish-brown with a distinct black central dorsal stripe. They occupy rocky, broken terrain in open woodlands and shrub lands, mostly living in foothills and canyons.
