The free living squirrels that can be seen in Hong Kong Park, mainly are
Belly-banded Squirrels Callosciurus flavimanus, subspecies thai, which are native to Western Thailand and Burma.
Until the 1960's there were no wild squirrels in Hong Kong and it is not
known whether these animals were deliberately introduced or accidentally
released. They are now common in all well wooded areas of Hong Kong
Island and the New Territories. They feed on blossoms, young foliage and
fruits of various trees, insects and small form of animal life.
