The Thing About Chipmunks

The Chipmunk sees you and freezes. When you move forward or backwards it flees. They seem to prefer a standoff. As long as your movements are limited there they stand. When a squirrel comes along they will chase it, never mind that pound for pound the squirrel is larger, has bigger teeth etc. I have never seen them catch their prey but if everything else remains true I expect they would be quite ferocious, sort of like how they demolish pines cones, systematically and with purpose. Chipmunks may be cute, somewhat shy, but I think that hides a smart little devil.
