Southern Flying Squirrel
The Southern flying squirrel from North America can be adopted for £50 for 1 year or £125 for 3 years.
This Squirrel's most distinctive feature is the cape of loose skin that stretches from its wrists to its ankles and forms the membrane on which it glides. They live in hardwood and mixed pine–hardwood forests and require older trees with cavities for roosting and nesting. During the winter they readily roost together in surprisingly large numbers of up to 50.
