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.
