Not to a mammal! Mammals carry disease. Also: they are gross.

I can see it now: 'nature enthusiast dies after fatal chipmunk attack'.

Lol, I was once attacked by a squirrel.

The behind-ear spot looks bright white instead of indistinct to me - the only way to tell a long-eared from a lodgepole according to my field guide's points visible in this photo (unless you can make out white vs yellow tipped tail fur in that blurry mass).

Tell me about fearing mammal bites! I still have a gopher bite scar from decades ago.
