Chipmunks have been reported frequently in the last few weeks. One picture was sent in to us. Chipmunks are part of the squirrel family. There are 25 species of chipmunk, 24 of which live in North America. The only chipmunk that doesn't live in North America is the Asiatic chipmunk, which can be found in northern Asia and parts of Eastern Europe. Chipmunks create dens to live in that will contain two different rooms in them. One room is a sleeping chamber while the other is a place to store food.
