Abstract

Sciurus anomalus Güldenstädt, 1785 is a rodent commonly called the Caucasian squirrel. S. anomalus is a medium-sized squirrel with chestnut gray to grizzled buff dorsum, buff eye rings, and chestnut to buff-yellow underparts. S. anomalus is 1 of 28 species in the genus Sciurus and is found in forests of the Middle East and extreme southwestern Asia. The International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources considers S. anomalus to be a species of “Least Concern;” habitat destruction is the main threat.
