Horse-tailed squirrel

Binomial name: Sundasciurus hippurus, Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, 1831

The Horse-tailed Squirrel (Sundasciurus hippurus) is a species of rodent in the Sciuridae family. It is found throughout the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, as well as the southern half of the Malay Peninsula, which includes the entire nations of Brunei and Malaysia, as well as some areas of Indonesia and Thailand. There was a mention of this squirrel being found in Vietnam in 1831 (I. Geoffroy, 1831), but subsequent descriptions of this squirrel's range have not included that nation.
