The Eastern Chipmunk hibernates in the winter.
At autumn, the Eastern Chipmunk collect and store large quantities of
seeds in his burrow.
With the onset of winter in the end of October, he disappear below ground.
This animal have expandable pouches in their cheek.
Each pouch can hold up to 33 kernels of dried corn.
