This Adorable Giant Blaugrana Squirrel Has To Be A Messi Fan

The Malabar giant squirrel, with blue and dark-red coloring, looks like it was created to support Barcelona.

Meet the Malabar giant squirrel, or Indian giant squirrel (Ratufa indica), the world’s cutest Barcelona fan.

Photos captured by wildlife photographer Kaushik Vijayan and posted to his Instagram page show a squirrel with blue and dark-red coloring that looks a bit like the blaugrana uniforms of famed football club Barcelona. 

The squirrel, native to India, is one of the largest species of squirrel in the world. Its head and body measure around 14 inches, but its tail can stretch up to two feet, according to Wikipedia. 

The coloring of these creatures is absolutely remarkable, as Vijayan captured. 

This guy has to be a Lionel Messi fan, right?
