PS, so, my flyer's name is "Momo," which is short for Momonga, the Japanese word for 'flying squirrel.' Does that mean if I get another and name it for the Indian word, I can call it...

The whiskers are called "feelers." I googled it - I hope that wasn't cheating.

Google isn't cheating it just doesn't help when it comes to scientific names. :twisted: "Sprouting on the face are whiskers called vibrissae. These are among the longest whiskers in the squirrel world."

Many points for trying Johnny :D
