Photographer's Note

The Indian palm squirrel (Funambulus palmarum) also known as three-striped palm squirrel, is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae. It is found naturally in India (south of the Vindhyas) and Sri Lanka. In the late 19th century, the palm squirrel was introduced into Western Australia, where it has since become a minor pest that is actively targeted for eradication due to its lack of natural predators.[3] The closely related five-striped palm squirrel Funambulus pennantii is found in northern India, and its range partly overlaps with this species.
