The Hopi Chipmunk (Tamias rufus) is a chipmunk found in Colorado, Utah and New Mexico, in the Southwestern United States. Chipmunks are small squirrel-like rodents, native to North America except for one species in northeastern Asia. Though they are commonly depicted with their paws up to the mouth, eating peanuts, or with their cheeks bulging out on either side, chipmunks are actually omnivorous.Photo credit: Mdf
