Striped Bush Squirrel published in a book

In my blog about the Selous Walking Safari I wrote about the Striped Bush Squirrel I encountered.

In 2012 the John Hopkins University Press will release a book tentatively called Squirrels of the World. The authors are Dick Thorington, John Koprowski, Mike Steele and Jim Whatton. They (or at least one of them ;-)) work for the National Museum of Natural History, Smithsonian Institute. That's the American Naturalis (or is Naturalis the Dutch Smithsonian? Anyways...).

I just signed a release form, so quite likely the book will incorporate one of my photos of the Striped Bush Squirrel :-) And of course I get a credit line. Another contribution to the scientific biology world of systematics, awesome!
