[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Indian giant squirrel is an upper-canopy dwelling species, which rarely leaves the trees, and requires "tall profusely branched trees for the construction of nests." It travels from tree to tree with jumps of up to 6 m (19.69 ft). When in danger, the Ratufa indica often freezes or flattens itself against the tree trunk, instead of fleeing. Its main predators are the birds of prey and the leopard.[wikipedia]

Hi Babujayan,
Never seen this beautiful animal. I think it is really seldom. A nice shot.
