Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!

Just had a look at other photos of these squirrels-their fur ( texture, thickness and colouring) is almost like that of the possums here in Oz.
This one is special ! Thanks for sharing this DaveWeth.
