squirrel

Description:

Grey squirrel with a red sheen and a red bushy tail. About 15 cm in lenght.

Habitat:

Living in the trees of Parque Del Este (Parque Generalisimo Francisco De Miranda ) Near Cerro del Avila a big mountain chain near Caracas. Venezuela.

Notes:

While I was observing the gorgeous sloths that were living in the tree I noticed something else moving....it was this lovely creature, eating and collecting the fruits of the tree. He would always collect and return to the same spot to eat the fruits.
