This resembles the chipmunks in our garden!

Zhoen, they were always a delight. They also seemed so incongruous in many places — the heart of Delhi, for example.

Patricia: yet, despite the apparent similarity, they're in a different sub-family of the squirrels. Chipmunks are more closely related to marmots than to these palm squirrels.
