|Now, I will admit to having a favourite - and this is her - Tiny! I adored her, I think it was because she was my first female, who I got in early-June 1993. She lived to be 6 years old, and in early 1999, I was devastated when she died. All her life she never once had to be seen by a vet, she was so healthy, and then a sudden illness took her life!
Here in this photo, taken in late-August 1996, she was swishing her tail from side to side, in a snake-like manner - chipmunks are very expressive with their tails, like tree squirrels. They swish their tails like this when cautious of an object they don't recognise. Tiny sees a piece of orange-peel, that she is wary of!, as you can see in this photo - a classic moment captured!
