Since then, AE has been diagnosed in 5 dogs, 3 privately owned lemurs (Lemur catta), and a wild-caught eastern chipmunk (Tamias striatus
) in the region surrounding the western shores of Lake Ontario in southern Ontario (16-21; A.S.
(Apicomplexa: Eimeriidae) from the eastern chipmunk (Tamias striatus
) in Pennsylvania with a description of one new species.
Eastern chipmunks (Tamias striatus
), whose last shared ancestor with African striped mice lived about 70 million years ago, also made more ALX3 in the light stripes on their flanks, the researchers found.
Of the total animals captured, 23 were non-mouse species, including 10 Eastern Chipmunks (Tamias striatus
), nine Northern Short-tailed Shrews (Blarina brevicauda), and four Red Squirrels (Tamiasciurus hudsonicus).

The species examined were golden mouse (Ochrotomys nuttalli) and eastern chipmunk (Tamias striatus
), which both are native to the United States (although we only examined specimens from Georgia; see Section 2).

Backyard Visitor: Eastern chipmunk (Tamias striatus
); Parma, Ohio
Torpor patterns of hibernating eastern chipmunks (Tamias striatus
) vary in response to the size and fatty acid composition of food hoards.
Kevin Rowe and Ken Paige, biologists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, used DNA (chemical that carries hereditary information) samples to trace the ancestors of 244 eastern chipmunks, Tamias striatus
leucopus), 21 woodland jumping mice (Napaeozapus insignis), one meadow jumping mouse (Zapus hudsonius), four chipmunks (Tamias striatus
), and one vole (Microtus sp.).
