Visit Kadoorie Farm and Botanic Garden and learn all about Pallas’s Squirrel!
This yellowish-brown squirrel has a bright orange underside and a long bushy tail. Its big, shining eyes add charisma to this arboreal animal. It spends most of its time in trees but can sometimes be seen scampering across the ground. It feeds primarily on fruits, leaves and nuts.
The Pallas’s Squirrel is an introduced species. It is believed pet squirrels that escaped or were released into the countryside later established a stable population in Hong Kong.
