FACTS OF INTEREST:
  • There are forty-two species of flying squirrel, found mostly in Asia and Europe, with two species in North America.
  • Flying squirrels do not really fly, but glide after leaping from trees, usually for 20 to 75 feet, but sometimes as much as 150 feet.
  • Flying squirrels steer by tightening and loosening the furred flaps of skin that stretch from their front wrists to their back feet.
  • Flying squirrels are nocturnal. Their big eyes are well adapted to night vision. One of the favorite foods these omnivores search for in the dark is the truffle, a mushroom delicacy.
