Variegated squirrel

I don’t like squirrels, but saw this one (a variegated squirrel, Sciurus variegatoides dorsalis) in Costa Rica and had to admit it was rather cute. Especially when it was hanging upside-down in a tree eating a mango.

Still, if I had a vegetable garden in Costa Rica I’m sure I’d quickly want to kill it.  Cuteness can’t hide pure evil.
