This squirrel dangles upside down for minutes at a time as it desperately tries to find seeds to eat. The Indian palm squirrel clung on to a branch 15ft above the ground while trying to find an opening in one of the pods on the African Tulip tree.

It found a small opening and was able to take some seeds to eat before scurrying back off into the tree. Sudhir Joshi captured the bizarre scene at Hulimavu Lake in his home city Bangalore, India.
