Abstract

Sciurus sanborni Osgood, 1944 is a rodent commonly called Sanborn's squirrel or ardilla de Sanborn. S. sanborni is a small squirrel with olive brown dorsum, buff eye rings, and usually, white underparts. S. sanborni is 1 of 28 species in the genus Sciurus, and a rare endemic of Peru that is found in lowland Amazonian forest between 300 and 580 m elevation. The Peruvian Ministry of the Environment classifies S. sanborni as "Vulnerable" and the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources considers the species to be "Data Deficient;" habitat destruction is the main threat.
