    ^ You're alive!

    Pretty damning evidence tonight...



    I spent some time wondering whether to do the right thing and shoo it away, but decided to try and get a decent photo instead. I'm not particularly fond of jack fruit anyway.



    I really can't see this chap surviving long... as the saying goes, he has to be lucky every time, the five dogs only have to be lucky once.

    The squirrels around my house in Chiang Mai look a lot different than the squirrels at Mendip’s place. The ones around my place look like the creature on kid’s movie Ice Age that chases the acorn around.

    I finally got around to looking them up and found they are not squirrels at all. They are northern treeshrews.

    How stupid I feel not knowing these weren’t squirrels.

    'Squirrel at Sunrise!'



    I saw this guy about 200 metres from our house during the dog walk the other morning. They use the overhead cables as runways in the sky and cover great distances going between gardens and raiding the fruit trees. I like to see them but with another bumper mango crop developing this year the squirrels are going to have a field day. They seem to just take a few mouthfuls out of a mango before throwing it on the ground for my wife to find and moving on to the next. It drives her berserk.

    My only contribution to this thread is the amusement I have had by asking any Thai to pronounce the word “squirrel” Iceman123. I do much the same with my wife. I start talking about my grandson whose name is 'Maverick'. I just asked the wife to say squirrel and she called it กระรอก after seeing a pix. Sounds like 'star lock' when she says it. Squirrel was a non-starter despite my requests!

    White ones are more common around here, Non Suwan, than the common greys.
