Did you know that chipmunks are not native to planet Earth? In fact, they come from a very distant galaxy, and were encountered a long, long time ago by soldiers of an evil empire who used the docile mounts to roam around forested planets.

The result is, shall we say, absolutely brilliant. Please note that these pictures are copyrighted and were not released under a CC license.

With that said, enjoy the remaining photographs!
