Dwarf squirrel        Images © Mark A. Chappell

Several species of dwarf squirrels (genus Microsciurus) are found in Latin America.   This one is either the western dwarf squirrel (M. mimulus) or the Santander dwarf squirrel (M. santanderensis) -- I photographed it in Tatama National Park in western Colombia, where both species' ranges seem to overlap.
