I looked under the Index, and found nothing for the more common, cute and slightly smaller Mammal the Tree Squirrel?!

So to attempt at starting one off here.

Evening to you all,
Witnessed a Tree Squirrel play around with a very big monitor lizard at Letaba. It all went on on for close to an hour with the monitor lizard following the squirrel all over the tree and when it seemed it had it cornered the little chap leaped over its head and that was it.
