There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Starting with my familiar squirrel which I saw in the wild in my experience to Tirumala (read my post in Tigers of eastern Ghats).



The Indian giant squirrel or Malabar giant squirrel, (Ratufa indica) is one of the largest tree squirrel species in the world belonging to genus Ratufa native to India.

It is a large-bodied diurnal, arboreal, and mainly herbivorous squirrel found in South Asia.

Location : Sri vari paadalu, Tirumala (My visit to there, same location i.e.., srivari paadalu, same sighting)

Sadly this tolerating behavior of them making them vulnerable;e to pet trade by offering food and capturing them. Mainly in our Andhra state. Crying

Daniel Rosengren: " A mother Blick's Grass Rat with her baby. These rodents are endemic to Ethiopia and only found on the highlands between 2,500 and 4,000 meters above sea level. These two remind me of those old children's book characters called Barbapapa, anyone agree? Photographed in Bale Mountains National Park, Ethiopia. "

" Meerkats are forever busy from the moment they stick their heads out of the burrow. The first head (being the scout) pops out shortly after sunrise to ensure it is safe for the family to get up and active.

Once the scout has scanned the area and gives the “safe to get active” call, heads start popping up everywhere. This family consisted of 11 individuals and because of their vulnerable size, they rely heavily on safety in numbers.
The first thirty to forty minutes will be their “quiet time” where they sit and just enjoy the warm rays of the morning sun. During this time, their heads NEVER stop moving as they are continuously on the lookout for a potential threat.
These adorable critters are so much fun to spend time with as they are forever busy, the scene is forever changing and you are never left with a dull moment. "
