Least Chipmunk

Did you know that there are 23 species of chipmunk? The Least Chipmunk (Tamias minimus) is the smallest North American chipmunk. Its size ranges from 8″ to 12″. That size must include the tail because these guys are really little.

It has three black with white stripes between them on their face and five on their back. They do not hibernate, but do go into the state of “torpor”.
