I've seen a lot of interesting critters but wanted to know if anyone here had chipmunks?
I had rats before, absolutely love them!!
Had mice too, quite addictive to watch them play and run around.
I had all different kinds of colors with my mice and ratties and my rats got free run time in the house, I didn't push that with the mice, lol.

Chipmunks are said to live 6-10 years, so I've heard from other chipmunks' owners.

Getting chipmunks in the states isn't as easy as I thought it would be. Was very hard. I love having my chipmunk though it's different from having the rats and mice.

Now that I have earned her trust anyone can come in and interact with her. I set up the chipmunk safe zone and as long as you don't make quick moves she will come up to you. She's not a fearful or bitey chipmunk and she's got a very nice disposition. She's not really that destructive either, I am very surprised as I expected lots of chewing

Aaw. I don't have one, but I always thought a chipmunk would be cute and a fun animal to keep. I'm glad you got a sweet one. :)

I used to keep them when I was a kid. Getting them was easy-peasy since we had this big ol' Persian tomcat who would bring them home all the time. He never hurt a single one (he hated birds and what he'd do to a bird wasn't pretty). Never mice or squirrels, just chipmunks. Never kept them for longer than a week or so. There'd always be more.

Never knew them to be biters unless you did something they didn't like, and then it was more like a warning nip.

Is your "baby" a Siberian chipmunk?
