Chipmunks are extremely active animals, full of activity and curiosity therefore require plenty of space for exercise.
Although naturally ground dwelling animals, they are excellent climbers and in the wild spend a lot of their time foraging for food.
Chipmunks will take time to tame, but if you are patient you should be able to tame your chipmunk, but they do tend not to like being handled. The average life span of a chipmunk can range from 2-5 years old for males and sometimes over 6 years old for females.
Don’t be fooled by their size they are still a big commitment and you must ensure you can take on providing a long and lasting home to your new family member.
