Heylo! Came over to smile at Your wizened old man! Asking him for answers….he just nibbles and smiles, nibbles and smiles…
Cheers and Namaste. 🙂
Here’s what Dave says, and I quote:
“They call it the Chica or Chiza in Costa Rica, which I assume is imitative of the call. It’s a “variegated” squirrel, related to our gray squirrel, and feeding on a mangrove fruit – near the beach (of course) in Samara, CR. and in a spot where crocodiles like to sit below in the water(!)”
There you have it. The Chica or Chiza of Costa Rica. Food for CROCS! Gulp…
Wow. Ask where he is from as well. My husband found one that was black with a white tail. I thought it was a skunk at first. Amazing how different they are even within an area.
i did a search on red squirrel but none of the images have this striped head thing going on…will send dave a link to this and ask him to weigh in on it.
Now ladies…is there really such thing as a typical squirrel? 🙂 He really does have beautiful markings.
i swear, he looks like a dignified old man. i love it.
Oh How HILARIOUS! Yeah! You gifted me my first laugh of the day! Gold stars to You! He is BEAUTIFUL! Wow. Never seen one with those kinds of markings. And is that blonde on his little face? He almost could be my son. 😆 Thank You So Much JRuth!!!! I hope You have a Super-Fantastic Day! Namaste. 🙂
Grins…he looks like a wizened old man-squirrel to me! Cracks me up!! I need to ask Dave what type of squirrel this old fella is. He’s way cute.
