These remarkable shots of the largely lone-some creatures were captured by local photography student Daniel Kearney.
"It was weird. They look like ordinary squirrels, the way they move and behave... but they're not; bright red glowing eyes. I couldn't believe what i was seeing. I saw the first and a day later i saw the second."
Here are the photographs that Daniel managed to capture before these unusual creatures slipped back into the under-growth.
