Squirrels – abundant and no big deal, right? But take a look at this guy.
Saw this guy today scampering from a nearby tree, huge round guava in his mouth.
“He eats the fruit and almonds as well,” said our friend.
We watched him race across the sand and clamber up the tallest palm tree in the vicinity.
“What’s he doing up there?” we asked.
“He’ll find a small ripe coconut to break open and eat.”
Would dearly have loved to see him do that, but he chose not to oblige, staying hidden under the fronds presumably enjoying his fruit.
