I hope this question fits here, I haven't found another community where it would fit.
Two years ago I was in a hotel in Sri Lanka (south-western coast) and in the hotel gardens there were a lot of squirrels. From what I could find out, they probably were Indian Palm Squirrels, but I don't know for sure. They were striped.
They were very tame and come to the hotel guests, hoping they would get something to eat. You could even touch some of them, so they are probably used to that. We fed them some roasted peanuts (unsalted) and they were pretty happy about it, sometimes they also just took them by themselves =)
My question is, as I am about to visit the same hotel again this year, is it safe to do so? I know that they mainly eat nuts, fruits and insects, but our nuts were purchased in Germany (though propably imported from elsewhere anyway). Is there any danger for the squirrels or is it a terrible idea to feed those wild animals anyway or is it fine to do so, as long we don't cram them?
