Zhong Tenghui encountered a Plantain Squirrel (Callosciurus notatus) at ADM, NTU.

They are usually not spotted until they start to scamper energetically across the ground or trees since they are very quiet.

They easily identifiable by the cream & black stripes across their sides & chestnut-brown underbelly, and are fairly common in campuses too.

Unfortunately, this one died due to unknown reasons.
