Someone with a keen eye uploaded a photo of a strange animal to Facebook groupSingapore Wildlife Sighting, recently.
Here’s what it looks like:
“Is this some kind of squirrel?” she asked.
That’s probably the same question you ask after seeing a picture of this animal that resembles a mouse and a squirrel.
The photo piqued the curiosity of other wildlife enthusiasts and sparked an interesting discussion in the comments section.
Some of them hilariously noted that the animal bears a striking resemblance to Scrat, the squirrel from the popular film franchise Ice Age.
Experienced nature guide Ivan Kwan I’ve clarified the answer in the comments section: it’s actually a common tree shrew.
No, not squirrels.
