Congratulations Paul, your Variegated Squirrel is our Spotting of the Day:

"That's a spectacular and colorful tail on this Variegated Squirrel (Sciurus variegatoides), our Spotting of the Day! Found in Central America and southern Mexico, variegated squirrels can show considerable variation in coloration depending on location and even between individuals in the same population. Their tail is long with dense hair".
