Prevost's squirrel Callosciurus prevostii
Animals in our sanctuary
Florence was found and taken care of by the Natuurhulpcentrum. Where the animal exactly came from is not known. She was probably kept illegally and escaped or was set free.
Prevost was seized from a family where he was kept illegally as a pet.
Guillaume was seized and temporarily housed at Refuge de l'Arche (FR). As they had no suitable enclosure for him, they contacted us. He now enjoys a natural enclosure here at De Zonnegloed.
