栗鼠 or 松鼠?


Squirrel action shot!

There are these weird black squirrels on campus.  They're not the same as the weird, black, Bronx squirrels, which, as strange as they are, are just a color variation on the normal, gray ones.  These appear to be a different species from what we have in NYC.  They just look kind of different somehow.

I mean, I guess it is to be expected that the animals here would be different since I'm on the other side of the globe and the climate's totally different.  Still it's exciting seeing animals I'm not used to.  I mean, look at me!  I went and whipped out my camera and took a picture of a squirrel!  When I'm in NYC I laugh at all the tourists who are doing that, and yet here I am doing the same.

Fun times.
