Have some problem to Identify Squirrels from the remote Arunachal Pradesh – Eaglenest in northeast India.
All of them is found at around 2000 mas in almost unexplored area.
The ones I have to deal with is Pallas squirrel, Hoary-bellied squirrel and Himalayan Orange bellied squirrel and I have uploaded them on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/78467255@N08/
Photo 1 and 2 is of same Squirrel. Long nose, almost a bit like Malayan tree shrew,,,
Photo 3 is of a flying squirrel. Around 75% the size of Bhutan giant flying squirrel but completely different. Is it a weird morph of Red giant squirrel och something else?
Photo 4 is Bhutan giant flying squirrel I guess,
Photo 5. Squirrel with quite long tail suggest Hoary Bellied or Pallas?
Photo 6 and 7 is of same squirrel. Shorter tail. Orange bellied squirrel??
Photo 8. Very vocal. Screamed at me for 20 minutes. Rufuous color around head and belly. Little darker than the others. Pallas?
Hope for some help before I start my trip report from 3 weeks in India.
