Chipmunks
By Vickie Chao
  

1     Have you ever seen a chipmunk? Chipmunks are small squirrels. Their heads and backs are grayish brown with stripes. Their bellies are whitish yellow, and their tails are long and bushy. They like to live in places with a lot of trees. They are very good at running. They are very good at climbing trees and rocks, too.
 
2     At first glance, chipmunks look just like any other squirrels. So how do we know if we are looking at a chipmunk? The trick is to look at the animal's face. If it has stripes on its face, then it is a chipmunk. Otherwise, it is an imposter!
 
3     Chipmunks eat all kinds of food. They especially like nuts, seeds, grains, and fruits. Sometimes, they eat eggs, insects, or other smaller animals, too. When out looking for food during the day, chipmunks have the habit of stuffing their mouths full. They can do that because their cheeks are like elastic pouches. As they put more things into their mouths, their cheeks expand. Sometimes, their cheeks can become as big as their heads!
