The name chipmunk is derived from an Ojibwe word that means “one who descends the trees headfirst.”

People that live in North America are familiar with chipmunks. These small, ground-dwelling mammals are known for their cute looks and habit of digging burrows in places that upset people. Although it’s easy to take a look at chipmunks and not give them a second thought, we think it’s time to delve deeper and look at 10 incredible chipmunk facts. Take time to see beyond the plain creatures you see in your yard and garden daily.

  • Biologists believe that half of all chipmunks in a given area were born the same year that they’re being studied.
  • A chipmunk can collect as many as 165 acorns in one day.
  • The chipmunk’s cheek pouches are adaptations that allow it to carry lots of food to its burrow at one time. They are so stretchy that they can grow to three times the diameter of the animal’s head.
  • The rodent doesn’t enter proper hibernation but a state called torpor. During torpor, the chipmunk’s heart rate can drop to four beats a minute. Normally, its heart rate is 350 beats a minute. Its body temperature also plunges from about 94 degrees to 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
