INDIA (WTHR) — What are your feelings on squirrels?

Are you a fan?

Whether you are or aren't, you've gotta think these are cool. They're technicolor squirrels called Malabars.

They live deep in the jungles of India where photographer Kaushik Vijayan captured stunning images of them.

A Malabar squirrel can grow up to three feet long and jump 20 feet. It allows them to leap from tree to tree without having to touch the ground.

The technicolor squirrels have become a viral sensation after people started sharing Vijayan's photographs.
