The Gray-bellied Squirrel (Callosciurus caniceps) is a species of rodent in the Sciuridae family. It is found in forests, plantations and gardens in Peninsular Malaysia, Thailand, southern Myanmar, southern China (Yunnan) and possibly western Laos.[1] It has been introduced in the Ryukyu Islands in Japan. As suggested by its name, its belly is usually gray, though sometimes reddish on the sides. Depending on subspecies and season, the upperparts are gray, yellowish-olive or reddish.
