Indeling

Sciuridae [familie]
Callosciurus [genus] (1/1)
erythraeus [soort]

Pallas’ squirrel originates from China. In western Europe it is being kept as a pet and it occasionally escapes. In the Netherlands the species has established populations on two locations in the province of Limburg. The squirrels are being actively eradicted here, as the squirrel can compete with the native red squirrel.
