WILDLIFE -- Echoes of the Forest: Taiwanese Squirrels

The forest in Kenting, which extends across southern Taiwan, is a reservoir of tropical biodiversity. The Taiwanese squirrel has a unique behavior where it uses a specific call for each purpose. For example, if a monkey, eagle or snake approaches, they make different sounds to warn other members of the group which type of predator is approaching. Males also use a special sound when courting a female. This episode features Taiwanese squirrels using their diverse range of calls to overcome many challenges of life in the forest.
