While I am not a big fan of bananas this Variegated Squirrel sure was.
The Variegated Squirrel is a medium sized tree squirrel found broadly throughout Central America. A diurnal squirrel that rarely ventures onto the ground foraging and nesting in the trees.
It is funny how seeing a species of animal that is so similar yet so different, in this case a squirrel, from those in our day to day lives can elicit a deep internal wow.
For example, when a red squirrel passes us by in the forest nearby we don’t give a second glance, but we stood and watched this guy as long as we could remarking on the colors of their fur and behavior similar yet different from the squirrels in our forests at home.
Happy Friday and wishing you a wonderful weekend and perhaps a little something different?

Your photo is stunning, Mike, and shows off this unusual tropical squirrel nicely. Very lovely vine, too. Cheers to you and the usual and unusual.
