Tamias, the genus name for chipmunks, is a Greek word meaning steward or treasurer. The trait of these smallest members of the squirrel family of storing food inspired the genus name. This least chipmunk stores seeds for winter food when it hibernates. Gathering seeds in its flexible cheek pouches, this individual paused on top of a rock to briefly look around before leaping to the ground and disappearing into a small burrow.
