Question:
What animals prey on chipmunks for food?


Replies:
Like all small mammals, chipmunks may be prey for a number of larger animals, including fox, coyote, hawks, owls, etc. There are many species of chipmunks, though only one in most of the eastern U.S., and many species of predators; relationships are complex.
