Chipmunks are one of Montana’s most visible animals. Of the sixteen species of Western Chipmunk, Montana is home to three of them: the Yellow-pine Chipmunk, the Least Chipmunk and the Red-tailed Chipmunk.
Tamias amoenus: Yellow-pine Chipmunk
Tamias minimus: Least Chipmunk
Tamias ruficuaudus: Red-tailed Chipmunk
Chipmunks usually forage for foliage and berries. They are very quick and often travel in groups. Please remember, no matter how cute a wild animal may be, it is still a wild animal. Please do not feed or harass them.
