Chipmunk is the name for animals belonging to the Sciuridae family of the Rodentia order. A chipmunk’s body features a long, fluffy tail and a vertical striped coat, and they are well known for the way they store food inside their cheeks. There are several types of chipmunk within the Tamias genus, and most of them are found in North American. They are omnivorous and feed on grains, mushrooms, and insects. Many types of chipmunk spend autumn gathering food to store in their homes for the winter, spending the cold months inside their nests until spring.
