When John Koprowski, a specialist on these species, first saw the Malabar gigantic squirrel, he couldn’t believe his eyes.
John assumed it was a monkey, not a squirrel, because of its size.
Her size isn’t the only thing that distinguishes her. There’s also her fur, or rather the color of it. Take a look at the photos.
They appear to be enormous. Koprowski claims to be a professor and assistant principal at the University of Arizona’s School of Natural Resources and the Environment.
Essentially, this is a squirrel of enormous dimensions, far larger than the eastern gray squirrel and unlike any other squirrel we’ve seen before.
Purple, orange, normal brown, maroon, and black are some of the hues available.
Some colors are quite uncommon in animals, giving them a unique and odd appearance. Purple and burgundy are the colors.
Aside from their attractive look, multicolored squirrels also assist them in escaping into the wild.
Their hues, according to Koprowski, provide them a great advantage when they conceal amid the bright colors and deep trees.
In the daylight, their “real colors” and fur may be seen.
According to Wikipedia, they devour tree bark, fruits, nuts, and flowers. There are species that are omnivores, meaning they eat both bird eggs and insects.
These Malabar squirrels are difficult to spot on the ground because they like to live in big trees, hopping from one to the next.
These magnificent huge creatures are not in danger of extinction at the moment, but more protection is always needed.
There’s a slim chance you’ll run into any of the creatures in the wild.
Apart from being necessary to go to eastern or southern India, you should also travel far into the forests once you there.
