We have squirrels runnin' a muck in our yard right now. Even worse than in the fall! We also has chipamonks. My pal Fizzy said that his mom said that chipamonks an' squirrels are not the same animal. He don belief her.
My mom also said they are diffrent animals. Lexie said I needa read Linnayus someone. I don know 'bout that.
Squirrels is cheekier an' stoopider than chipamonks. I can say that for a fact. Chipamonks are smaller an' they don climb up stuff so much like squirrels. They have shorter tails. Mom says they are in the yard, but that's where I think she is kiddin' me cuz I 'most never see 'em.
Lexie used to see 'em, back when she could see. Mom said Lexie would see one go down a hole an' she would stick her nose down that same hole an' wait for a looooong time for him to come back out. Then he would come back out a back door an' be runnin' back an' forth behind her, but she would not move her nose from his front door so she would not see that part. Lexie said this is so not true. Mom said it is.
So of course squirrels an' chipamonks are the same animal, only diffrent sizes an' diffrent places livin' like ground versus trees, an' one climbs an' the other don climb. Exactly the same! I hope this clears up any confushion on the subject.
I think you are right, Buddy, a varmint is a varmint is a varmint. And we gots work to do to get rid of them!!!
Fanks fur cwearin' up da confushun, Buddy!! All I kno' r - dem need be chaseded :D
Yeah, like I said, same animal!! See, Buddy, we're the smart ones! That Lexie don't know diddly squat!!
Another important difference in the two is that chipmunks sing. Have you ever heard Alvin and the Chipmunks? They are one of my favorite groups.
OMD! I din know that the chipamonks sing! If you like them that much, they must sing really good, but I have never heard them before. Lexie says I don pay good attenti---
Sorry, thought I saw a squirrel there . . .
They's pests is what they is! Pests! I'll get 'em all one of deez days!
