Video by @joelsartore | Aptly named, the cliff chipmunk spends most of its time near cliffs foraging for berries, seeds and acorns during dawn and dusk. They communicate using three different calls– a bark during normal activity, a sharp chirp indicating excitement, and a mixture of high-pitched sounds that are emitted when threatened.
This chipmunk is a resident of @southwestwildlife where he helps with their education programs. Southwest Wildlife is a wildlife sanctuary dedicated to rehabilitating and releasing animals back into their wild habitats as well as educating the public about the importance of conservation.
