We've got a lot of squirrels, too, in Sri Lanka. We had one invade the second house we lived in - Fahim had to chase it with a broom. You don't really want to touch them or let it get close to you since they can carry rabies - you just don't want to mess around with that stuff.
They eat the jambu fruit that grows in the jambu tree. Because where else would jambu fruit grow? :P Yeah, I know, weak attempt. *cough*
And what the heck are these three up to?
Same three just a few seconds later. REALLY makes me wonder what these three are up to. *cough*
