Variable Squirrel

This very cute and adorable Variable Squirrel (Callosciurus finlaysoni) comes in variable colour and patterning as the name suggests. They are native to Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and South Vietnam. It was introduce to Singapore and can now be found in Serangoon area.

Isn't it cute?
I especially like the shape of their ears.

Variable squirrels feed on a variety of seeds and fruits

They are slightly bigger than the Plantain squirrel

As with all introduce species, there is always a risk that they will cause threats to our biodiversity.
