These little Chipmunks always seem to be greeting me as I pass by them while hiking the trails here in Wyoming.
These animals are active during the day and eat seeds, berries, nuts, fruits and insects.
They breed in early spring. Females produce one litter usually of 5 or 6 young.
They store food in an underground burrow, where they spend the winter. These animals go into a state of torpor for extended periods of time, but do not hibernate.
