Eastern Chipmunk

Series of measured elevation illustrations of the Eastern Chipmunk

The Eastern Chipmunk (Tamias striatus) is a ground squirrel native to and residing in deciduous forests of eastern North America. It can also be spotted around urban parks or rocky areas with shrub cover. The Eastern Chipmunk is small and has pouched cheeks for storing and carrying food.

It is distinguished by both light and dark brown stripes running along its body with a lighter underbelly and darker tail. Although it does not go into hibernation, the Eastern Chipmunk will sleep for long periods of time and wake every so often to consume the food kept in its burrow.

Rodents are classified by a single pair of continuously growing incisors in both their upper and lower jaws; the length of their incisors are maintained by gnawing, which is how they eat. The diet of Rodents usually consists of seeds and plants, but some species do have more varied diets.
