Indian Palm Squirrel
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This picture of an Indian Palm Squirrel is from my archives of 2013.|
The Indian palm squirrel or three-striped palm squirrel (Funambulus palmarum) is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae found naturally in India (south of the Vindhyas) and Sri Lanka. In the late 19th century, the palm squirrel was introduced to Madagascar, Réunion, Mayotte, Comoro Islands, Mauritius, Seychelles and Australia, where it has since become a minor pest. The closely related five-striped palm squirrel, F. pennantii, is found in northern India, and its range partly overlaps with this species.

Hello Mr. Thakur,
Thank You for presenting the squirrel in such a cute way. The catch light in the eye has made the squirrel appear so naughty. You have clicked the picture from a nice POV capturing the mood and the action.
Thanks for sharing this cutie!!

Nice to view this cute little Indian palm squirrel from your corner of the globe. It actually looks very similar to our Eastern Chipmunk, except this guy has a much longer tail. Beautiful markings and lovely colors. Focus is sharp and I like the POV you chose. Excellent catchlight in its eye.
