On a diet? Chipmunk 'reads' ingredients of tasty snack barCaters

This hungry chipmunk must be a real health nut - as he appears to be reading through the list of ingredients on a breakfast bar wrapper before tucking in.

Obviously worried about his waistline, the cheeky animal picked up the wrapper almost as though he was reading a newspaper before scanning through the contents.

And after a thorough check he decided to pass on the tasty granola bar treat - but still peckish returned to a can full of other food to look for something more suitable.

The cute moment was captured by keen photographer Michael Higgins, 29, while on a camping trip at Algonquin Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada.
