When the chipmunk hopped up on a branch above the leaf litter below I thought it was holding a seed of some type in its paws.
As the chipmunk began to eat I realized that this was not a seed!
After extracting and eating the slug's entrails it paused for moment with the slug's empty body grasp tightly.
After a short pause little rodent resumed eating;
finishing by licking its paws after the last bite. The chipmunks diet mostly consist of seeds, nuts, fruits, and other plant materials however they have a carnivorous side as well as this series of photographs illustrates.
Wonderful captures Coy.
i think i just lost my appetite.
One has to have a varied diet.LOL
Terrific set of photos, Coy. I had no idea they'd eat anything like that!
Never seen that before.
Fascinating! I never would have expected a chipmunk to eat a slug!
Didn´t know that!
Great capture in the right moment!
Ya learn something new every day. Great captures.
