Tamias (genus)

Learn More



They are very intelligent and can be quite destructive so care must be taken when free-ranging. Some chipmunks may never become tame although providing you have obtained them from a good breeder or rescue chances are high they will at least enjoy sitting on your shoulder or investigating your pockets. They are not a pet for sitting still and being stroked! This means they do not make good pets for a family with small children.
