Did you know?

Striped squirrels belong to the Asiatic subfamily of squirrels (Callosciurinae), to which they are more closely related than to the chipmunks. These tree-dwellers are excellent climbers and jumpers. Usually they live in pairs. Due to their tropical and subtropical distribution range they do not need to fatten themselves up for the winter as they do not hibernate.
