Plantain squirrel (Callosciurus notatus) burying a nut in the ground

posted in: Feeding strategy, Mammals | 0

This lively and bouncy plantain squirrel was seen and documented burying a nut (unidentified) in the ground.  It can be seen picking up the nut from the ground and digging the soil to bury it.  The squirrel packed the soil in by pressing down a few times with its front limbs.
