Sciurus anomalus (Γαλιά)


The Persian Squirrel is the highlight mammal of Lesvos island as it is the western edge of the distribution of it. I’m very happy that the first photo took the second place in the Mammal category of the May Φωτογραφία Άγριας Φύσης στην Ελλάδα Wildlife Photography in Greece competition

The Squirrel is fairly common and can be observed easily in several areas of the island and not only in the forested as i initially expected.
