Yes it is true, there are red squirrels in the Amazonian rainforest!!
I have just returned from 4 weeks in Ecuador on a holiday to the Galapagos and the Amazon jungle. I was lucky enough to see a rare red squirrel, but unfortuately I didn’t have time to get my camera out as it dashed off so quickly! However, the drawing above shows a simliar squrrel. It was much larger than our native red squirrel and had a black band around it’s large bushy tail.
So, apologies for the lack of blogs over the past few weeks and I have just uploaded all the recent red squirrel sightings, sorry for the delay!
