Indian Palm Squirrel
This adorable critter is plentiful around my home; jumping from branch to branch, running around on my terrace…they are so cute!
Indian palm squirrel (Funambulus palmarum) is a nut and fruit eater. The stripes on their back make them very attractive. Very vocal on detection of any danger.
They are seen in pairs during breeding season and together they build their nests. Some of them prefer niches and corners of my windows and roof! We can see them collecting materials for nest building, going up and down through the same trail.
