The Northern Palm Squirrel is native to Northern India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Iran. It is common in urban as well as wooded areas. It is also called the 5-lined Palm Squirrel to distinguish it from the similar Indian Palm Squirrel which is also called the 3-lined. (It has an extra off-white line on each flank.)
