Slightly bigger than a cat and possibly one of the largest squirrels in the world, the Black Giant Squirrel (Ratufa bicolor) is indeed a beautiful animal.
|The squirrel measured about a meter from head to tail with the tail almost half of the body length.|
Despite of their size, they can leap from branch to branch in the high canopy looking for food. At times they may be found at lower level when feeding but rarely coming to ground
|Searching for juicy fruit.|
|Really spoilt for choice with so many fruits to choose from.|
|Look at how the squirrel hold the fruits! The claw are used for climbing and not for food.|
