This cute little guy is faster and agile than he seems, he was jumping like 10-20 feet from tall evergreen trees in the slopes of Western Ghats, Kerala.

 

The Squirrel has a scientific name of Ratufa indica, also known as Indian giant squirrel, apparently they are harder to spot and are near-threatened.
