I have two chipmunks, Almond and Izzy who are the best of friends. I’m mentioning it here as these are two males and their friendship is quite odd in my experience. I don’t know if chipmunks can have ‘friends’ by my observations over months tells me these two are at least very close.

For a long time I thought Almond was a female, but as he was climbing up the aviary mesh early this year, there could be no mistake. These two spend lots of time together, often sitting next to each other. When one comes back in to the aviary the other will rush towards the other and rub noses and have gentle wrestling matches. They are both mature adults now but no sign of even the mildest disagreements let alone fighting. They are happy to eat together with no noticeable competition for food.

I have other males which can tolerate each other, but their relationship is variable with what I interpret as challenges towards each other from time to time.
