Japanese FS Breeder?

Postby Binsky734 » Sun Aug 11, 2013 1:14 am

So, I am mainly looking for a Southern FS, but I saw a picture of a Japanese FS, and they are absolutely adorable (I need to go drink some whiskey and shoot my guns to regain my manliness after that statement). I have tried google, but have been unable to locate a US breeder for the Jap FS.

Does anyone know of any?

Thanks,
Binsky

There are none that I know of. They live in really cold areas of Japan and I doubt the Japanese want to export them .... want to keep all that cuteness to themselves. :D

It is virtually impossible to export a Japanese flying squirrel from Japan, as 1) Japan is fiercely protective in a sort of "racist" way about its native flying squirrels and 2) it is not legal to own the Japanese fliers as pets within Japan. You would need to find a breeder who already has them in another country, such as the UK.

Please see my post here for more details about the Japanese situation:

This is so smart of the Japanese to protect these little furballs otherwise I would strip Japan of them all. :twisted:
