Northern Flying Squirrels

The name might be a little deceiving, because these squirrels can’t fly like a bird. They glide. Membranes connecting the wrists of their front legs to the ankles of their back legs allow them to transform into a fairly flat, square shape that can float through the air as much as 150 feet at a time. Northern Flying Squirrels prefer mature conifer forests, where they seek shelter in tree cavities and abandoned birds’ nests. They eat nuts, fungi, insects, fruit and seeds.
