As the smallest member of the squirrel family, chipmunks range in size but some species just barely surpass seven inches in length – making for a very cute little creature, as evidenced in this delightful photo by John Chapman.

And bonus factoid: Did you know that a single chipmunk can collect up to 165 acorns in a day? In two days, they can collect all they need for the entire winter. Industrious little things!
