Squirrel with wild fig.

This female Indian squirrel was my visitor this morning in January 2011.

I am not sure, but either she has a belly full of figs or she is pregnant, her teats seem a little obvious adding to my suspicion. They gestate for 6 weeks so there is no telling, though it is a little early in the year for that.

The wild figs really attract many birds and squirrels.


The Indian Palm Squirrel (Funambulus palmarum) also known as Three-Striped Palm Squirrel, is a species of rodent in the Sciuridae family. It is found naturally in India (south of the Vindhyas) and Sri Lanka.
