Hi Adrian9, welcome to Project Noah!

Sciurus vulgaris is a Eurasian species and is not found in Honduras.
According to Wikipedia there are two species of squirrels in Honduras: the Deppe's squirrel (Sciurus deppei), and the variegated squirrel (Sciurus variegatoides).
I hope someone else can help you identify which of the two you have here.

Welcome again!
