This little Southern Flying Squirrel (Glaucomys volans), also known as Assapan, found it's way into our site!
Southern flying squirrels are distinguished from their northern counterpart by their pure white belly. Northern flying squirrels will have gray fur at the base of the belly and will be bigger in most cases.
Although they are called flying squirrels, these volant creatures do not possess the power of flight, instead they glide through the trees at moonlight!
This little guy was placed safely on a tree shortly afterwards! 🌰🌲 #maybeweshouldcallthemglidingsquirrels
