Indian Giant Squirrel, also known as Malabar Giant Squirrel (Ratufa indica) is a large tree squirrel mostly endemic to forests of Indian Peninsula.

This photo was taken from Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, Thattekkad, in Ernakulam District of Kerala. These squirrels spend most of their time on tree tops, and haven't seen coming down.
