The Sanghir squirrel
Sanghir squirrel
( Prosciurillus
Prosciurillus
rosenbergii) is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae.[2] It is endemic to the presently-dormant volcanic Sangir Island, which is one of the Sangir Islands in Indonesia, located just north of the equator in the Celebes Sea, between the Indonesian island of Sulawesi
Sulawesi
and the island of Mindanao
Mindanao
in the Philippines.[1] Habitat[edit] This tropical tree squirrel is the most abundant mammal on heavily-cultivated Sangir, where it is found throughout the various ecosystems of the island (including towns and farms), but is especially concentrated in the dwindling old-growth lowland tropical rainforest.[1] Sangir Island
Sangir Island
has a rich diversity of ecosystems, due to the changing microclimates encountered on the sides of its volcanic peaks, the tallest of which is Mount Awu, at 1,320 metres (4,330 ft). In spite of this environmental diversity, the Sanghir squirrel has adapted itself to each of these climatic zones.[1] References[edit]
