They are durable and resistant animals, whose body is prepared to survive changes and climatic adversities.
These rodents have an average size, with a height of about 30 centimeters and an abundant fur, in shades ranging from brown to red.
Their body is light and thin, allowing them to gain speed without losing dexterity. They have powerful legs, equipped with sharp nails with which they can scratch the ground and, therefore, collect fruits and seeds.
One of their most extraordinary physical characteristics is their long tail, which strikes at first sight. It is covered by a voluptuous fur, which gives it a “soft” appearance.
The tail of an adult squirrel measures almost as much as its own body and can exceed 25 centimeters in length.
The tail plays a fundamental role in the life of chipmunk. Its primary function is to allow these rodents to stabilize when they run and stand on two legs.
It also helps to improve the running quality and speed of these animals, as well as to optimize jumps between trees.
