flying squirrel

Recommended Posts

I had a Southern Flying Squirrel on my back porch last night. They're not that rare but not seen often and this is the first time in my life I've ever seen one live. Unlike other squirrels, they're nocturnal.

Cool - So how'd it taste?

I want to know how he knew it was southern. Did it have a drawl and a number 3 tattooed on it's arm?[;)]

I found a whole nest of those critters in an old powder house in my hometown in Dutchess County, NY when I was a teenager. Folks thought I was nuts when I told 'em what I'd found 'cuz nobody around those parts had ever seen one.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

You know, I don't think I've ever seen one in person either.

Never got that close to one either, but I have seen the mess they make. There is a ski resort not far from here with lots of cathedral ceilinged vacation homes. The little bastards love to get under the ridge vents.

It was about the size of a chipmunk. At first I thought it was one but then I saw the tail and the lack of stripes on the back. This little critter stood still while I got to within 2 or 3 feet of it. I went inside and came back out 5 mins later and it was gone. I'm glad it hung around long enough for me to grab my camera.
