One of the most brightly coloured mammals, this tree-dwelling, twilight-active squirrel is black on its upper parts and vivid chestnut-red on the underparts, with a broad, gleaming white band along each side from noseto thigh. It lives alone or in small family groups, communicating by bird-like calls and visual displays of the bushy tail. The diet includes fruit, soft seeds, oily nuts, and buds, as well as termites, ants, grubs, and birds’ eggs. After 46-48 days’ gestation, the 2-3 young are born in a large nest of twigs and leaves, in a tree hole or among branches.
