Northern or Southern?

Postby Lenny » Mon Feb 13, 2006 12:16 am

Which do you prefer? Northern FS or Southern FS? Why?

In the post about northern flying squirrels it says they are less agressive than southerns. I didn't know southern are agressive :o

Any ways what do you prefer and why?

I don't think that SFS's are agressive as long as they are well bonded. All the people on this forum, as far as I know, have southern flying squirrels. NFS's don't seem to be as common as pets. In fact, none of the breeders that I have seem have had northerns.

Northern flying squirrels are considered endangered in some states and illegal to sell or possess. Northerns are know to be more laid back that Southerns.

I've heard both make good pets. But I think the only breeder that sells Northerns is Ratkateers Rodentry. Southerns make great pets! I don't think they'd get aggressive if they were bonded with their owner(s) either.

Oh man when I did my reasearch on the different types of FS I was sooo hell bent on getting a NFS but then I met Naya's Gucci and Boss they totally changed my mind... think if NFS are any nicer then Gucci or Boss then they must really really be speacial, although some people seem to prefer NFS because it's easier to cuddle with them because they are day I do want a northern. But until then I'm very happy to get a southern one.
