Giant Flying squirrel

Only about the cutest most adorable thing I've ever seen in my life. No chance of owning one though, they're from Asia.

Makes me want to move to Asia!

Haha, if it could fit down your shirt! Full grown GFS have a 20 inch body and then another 20 inch tail! :twisted: I bet they are really docile though because of their size.

Yes. I found it on a page where a woman is trying to breed them and release them back into the wild. She said the problem was poachers who were catching the majority of them and selling them for their fur or into the pet trade .

Helen that would have been just too amazing, if it was legal of course!

And Joan, don't make me set a giant flying squirrel on you! My attack squirrel wants pecans and he wants them NOW! :twisted:

Yea if it was legal I'm sure everyone would have had a ball learning about them. But I think the ones in China need a speacial diet that we can't provide, something w. mushrooms.

Oh, wow! He is beautiful! Are his eyes red, or is that flash? How hard is it to get an albino? Do they have special needs or no?

He's the only one I know of. They probably are killed off quickly in the wild.

I never get tired of those pictures of Ghost. I would love to see some new ones :) I hope to live long enough to see lots of color variations in our flyers. Solid black would be so pretty, and parti colors too.
