Maybe to the untrained eye, one would assume that it is a Sri Lanka Grizzled Giant Squirrel. But look at the nose. Only the Giant European Squirrel had such markings. The Grizzled Giant Squirrel, and I believe there are a few thousand left in the wild, have a heart-shaped tan spot on their nose, not the black/brown streak shown in this picture.
You sir, FAIL.
Depending on the time of the "rut", the Grizzled could indeed have a brown streak on his nose, covering up the normal tan spot. Especially if he was sniffing at the wrong spot.
