Uinta Chipmunk

Cute little critters and a favorite for park visitors to attempt to feed, but you are not doing them any favors by giving them human food. They become dependent on well-intended handouts and do not learn how to find and store natural food and will probably not make it through the winter months. Peanuts, pretzels and crackers will not store for the winter months.

How do you tell the difference between the Golden-Mantled Ground Squirrel and the Uinta Chipmunk? Chipmunks have stripes on their faces; squirrels do not! See  Golden-Mantled Ground Squirrel
