I have gathered many fun facts about chipmunks. For the longest time, I didn’t know that chipmunks and squirrels are different kinds of animals. Sure, they have tons of similarities but there are also some amazing differences I think you might not know about.
One of the main differences between chipmunks and squirrels is that squirrels are a little larger than chipmunks.
5 Fun Facts About Chipmunks:
- The term chipmunk is actually derived from the “chip-chip” sound made by the animal. Chipmunks almost sound like birds chirping.
- Chipmunks do make nests to live in, but they usually prefer to dig holes underground to live in. The holes can be 6 meters long.
- A group of chipmunks is called a scurry. And chipmunk homes are called dens or a burrow (it is also used for other small animals like rabbits).
- You’d be shocked to know that an average lifespan of a chipmunk is about 3 years.
- Chipmunks love acorns. They can collect about 170 acorns a day.
I hope you enjoyed the facts. Would like to know some famous chipmunks? If you are a 90s kid you won’t have a problem identifying these chipmunk cartoon characters. Chip ‘n Dale are some of the loveliest characters from Disney. I really enjoyed watching their episodes.
Alvin and the Chipmunks is also a very fun show that has three cute but kind of troublemakers.
