Chipmunks are part of the squirrel family.
What am I writing about?? Chipmunks are part of the squirrel family, found Asia and the north part of America. Believe it or not there are twenty one types of chipmunks, int he Northern America, and at least five kinds in Canada.
The description, with light and dark stripes on their backs and heads, mostly resembles the ground squirrel, because of their stripes being smaller on their backs it makes them look unique. In the wild Chipmunks live up to three years.
They live in with woods, like pine forests, and nests are made of grass and leaves broken up. Snakes, hawks and foxes often eat them.
The Eastern Chipmunk found in the eastern United States, eats berries fruit and nuts.
Merriam Chipmunks, they are gray, and is some of the larger kind, found in Southern California
Townsend’s Chipmunk, found in the cascade mountains, in California
Uinta Chipmunk, mainly feeds on pine nuts, and cactus seed
Alpine Chipmunk the smallest one, found in the sequoia National Park, feeds on bird eggs, and insects.
The Least Chipmunk, also a small one eats blueberries, found in New Mexico, and California, grasshoppers, and beetles.
Lodgepole Chipmunk, found in Nevada and California, eats fungus, caterpillars.
Yellow-Pine Chipmunk, found in California and Monatana, eats huckleberries, and mushrooms.
These are some of the chipmunks that I found out and most eat nuts and berries.
