Based upon my VERY limited knowledge of them, as we have many around here, I do know they are skittish, secretive, and prefer dark spaces. They are even more skittish than squirrels, and need burrows and places to hide. That's all I got about them.

Yea they are very fast, as we seen at the pet store,
and i do know that they require a lot of space. And im told that they can they can be handled, but you have to handle them from when they are young.

I would say none for now, they need very specific requirements more than likely, so I wouldn't risk it.

The only thing's I would risk, are rabbits and squirrels. But they also need their own space, and if I'm correct, chipmunks have a fairly large territory. But take this with a pinch of salt, I'm certainly a chipmunk expert.
