News and Squirrel

As if Taiwan and China weren't having enough Taiwanese red-bellied squirrels (Callosciurus erythraeus thaiwanensis) are invading Japan. As reported by, the squirrels now number in the tens of thousands, and are considered a big pest around Kamakura. Unfortunately, many Japanese find the "Taiwan-risu" to be cute and like to feed them (OK, I do not blame them, they are really really cute! :-) ).
