Grizzled Giant Squirrel (Ratufa macroura) Aka Dandulena, A Tricky Customer

I've finally got one of these fluffy fellows on a video after much waiting and struggle, but the result is still not very good. Not that they are a rare sight where I live, they  just are more vary of us humans and prefer to be higher up  in the trees than Three -Stripped Palm Squirrels, and none of them have ever come down to my bird feeders.  

Grizzled Giant Squirrel is not as many in population as Three -Stripped Palm Squirrel, nor is as widely spread.  However, they are more of a nuisance for fruit gardeners and farmers where ever they are found. They love fruits and nuts, and can gnaw right through the shell of a coconut!   I've always observed as them to be solitary, and much less active than Palm Squirrels. Learn more.........
