Smile A Little Smile For Me

My little buddy Alvin decided to come out of hiding yesterday. I think all our heat is making him hungry! I would leave one peanut at a time and if I turned my head for a second it was gone lol ;) He's pretty smart for a chipmunk and tries to sneak in and take the peanuts so quick I can't get a shot lol ;) I think he's turned camera shy.....!!

 

"The Eastern chipmunk looks a lot like a small, striped, reddish-brown squirrel with a white belly. Some squirrels do have stripes, but chipmunks have five dark stripes and several white ones, some of which stretch onto the head. Male and female chipmunks look alike.

These rodents' front feet have four toes. The back ones have five.

Chipmunk cheek pouches are made of stretchy skin so the animal can stuff them with food — a handy way to carry lots of goodies off to its burrow. The pouches get larger as the chipmunk gets older."

 

Have a good day everyone!
