Chipmunks do have tails; their most distinctive feature is the stripes around their eyes and on their back. An alternative Tirèlhat word for "chipmunk" is "veric" ["vE4Its], which means "stripey" (the usual word for "chipmunk" is "kittari" ["kIt:a4I]). -- languages of Azir------> ---<>--- hmiller (Herman Miller) "If all Printers were determin'd not to print any email password: thing till they were sure it would offend no body, \ "Subject: teamouse" / there would be very little printed." -Ben Franklin
