The Grizzled Giant Squirrels manifesto to a balanced diet and population control

Udawalawe National Park

Fun Facts

We the Grizzled Giant Squirrel, Ratufa macroura, need to stay omnivorous to maintain a balanced diet and superior image: it is strictly suggested to eat nuts, seeds, fruits, fungi – especially mushrooms, green vegetation, tree bark for fibre, and the eggs of small birds for protein. Though the treasonous, herbivorous lifestyle of some has led to the misrepresentation of our entire kind in cartoons, indicating we don’t like eggs, we release this manifesto to correct the misinformation spread.

Facts are not fun, they are rules to govern our society lest we fall into squirrel anarchy and televised propaganda via cartoons.

Did you know?

As of now, humans know very little about our hybrid brethren, which means we already have the upper paw. Thus, mating with our cousin – Ratufa indica – could lead to population control, as usually when animals cross the species barrier to mate, the hybrids are mostly infertile (case study: the mule, a hybrid of the horse and donkey). Our glorious lead scientist, Ratu F. A., has enthusiastically volunteered to become a test subject until permanent retirement.


From the dry zone national parks to the clouded and wet forests in Sri Lanka – Udawalawe, Yala, Wilpattu, Wasgamuwa, Horton Plains, and Sinharaja – we are everywhere.
