At Red Squirrel Education we love squirrels. All sorts of squirrels. We even want to see the grey squirrels thrive – but back in America where they belong and certainly not here in the British Isles where they are catastrophic for our lovely native red squirrels.
I came across this photo I took of an Indian Giant Squirrel. I saw it in a tree in Sri Lanka not India, just near the famous tourist spot of Sigiriya. Much bigger than a red or even a grey that we find in the United Kingdom, the Giant Squirrel has a particularly long tail and nice colourings.
Have you seen different squirrels in different parts of the world? Why not let us know and upload your photos here too?
