Gahaha, I just have to do this one!
Corniest of all corn in the world:
Q: Why is this an Asian squirrel?
A: Because it eats rice!

Pardon me for the silly riddle. I captured this pic when I first moved back to Singapore and was working from a park then, as I badly need connection to nature more than WiFi. That was after years of living in villages, and I was suffocating in the concrete jungle even though my parents had filled the entire 18th floor with greens to make me more at home.
So. Here I was sitting in a real jungle, getting all distracted taking pics of spiders (small, innocent ones, unlike those of Australia’s. heh heh), ants – the red juicy-assed ones, feathery looking animals that move on their own (and were definitely not feathers), and this squirrel hopped into the picture with a bundle of rice in its tiny hands.
I was like, “OMG! Asian Squirrel!” and then the image stuck in my head forever and ever and ever. Factually, I have no idea what species it is. 😀
