  1. An absolutely captivating photo, a great and a bit sad look of innocence and repression. Posted 9 years ago
    1. Thanks Ludo. I got that same feeling when looking at this portrait, a feeling of submission, somewhat resembling Japanese culture in some areas. Posted 9 years ago

The Japanese squirrel is a tree squirrel in the genus ''Sciurus'' endemic to Japan. The Japanese squirrel's range includes the islands of Honshū, Shikoku, and Kyūshū. Recently, populations on south-western Honshū and Shikoku decreased, and those on Kyūshū disappeared. One of the factors affecting the local extinction of this species seems to be forest fragmentation by humans.
