Microsciurus alfari, Alfaro’s Pygmy Squirrel or Central American Pygmy Squirrel is rare and lives only in mountain pine forests of Colombia, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Panama. In Costa Rica they are at Monteverde where these photos were made and they are in the Talamanca Mountains. I did not see one on my earlier trips to the Talamanca mountains.
