Walker's Mammals of the World

I highly recommend to anyone who is interested in flying squirrels obtaining a copy of the two volumn set, Walker's Mammals of the World. Originally published in 1964, there are many revisions of this reference work. I just obtained a copy, via ABEbooks, of the 4th edition, from 1983; it has numerous photos of various species of flying squirrel, and would have been well worth the price, just for them! Ernest P. Walker kept two flyers as companions, and Mr. Walker wrote a National Geographic article (from the 1960's) about their life with him.

What the world needs now are MORE SQUIRRELS! Then there would not be so many NUTS running around loose!
