Giant Squirrel having a feast
A large squirrel enjoying the fruits of the Spiky Fig (Ficus Cucurbitina). Looks like this guy knows how to carefully remove the spiky skin of the fruit.
This was part of a few days observation made by 1StopBorneo Wildlife team to document the ecological importance of this fig tree as a suitable candidate for reforestation projects.
The cream-coloured giant squirrel or pale giant squirrel is a large tree squirrel in the genus ''Ratufa'' found in forests in the Thai-Malay Peninsula, Sumatra , Borneo and nearby small islands. There have been no sightings in Singapore since 1995 and it is believed to be extinct. Reported sightings in Vietnam in 1984 are considered to be dubious.
