Wildlife Wednesday – The Chipmunk


Rise and shine for today’s Wildlife Wednesday from your Ohio Division of Wildlife. Looks like a CHUNK, must be a chipmunk!
Each year chipmunks cache huge numbers of seeds, and “forget” the location of many. Thus they plant scores of trees and other plants.
Like others of the squirrel family, the Eastern chipmunk has two breeding seasons; one in early spring and the other in early summer.
Chipmunks inhabit deciduous forests, brushy areas, and urban and suburban yards.
