I saw this squirrel at the edge of Nairobi National Park in August 2010. Any idea what species it is?

Bush squirrels

There are two species of bush squirrel in Nairobi National Park, the striped and ochre bush squirrel. This animal has no stripe down the side of its body so it must be the ochre bush squirrel which is very variable in colour.

If you put up an identification for ochre bush squirrel (Paraxerus ochraceus) I'll agree to it.
