Flying Squirrels – In St. Louis, really?

Did you know that St. Louis has Flying squirrels?  It’s true.  But just because they are called flying squirrels, that doesn’t mean they can fly like a winged bird or bat.

Flying squirrels have extra skin that stretches from their hands to their feet.  They use this extra skin to glide from tree to tree or from the tree to the ground.  They are not commonly found because of the small population size around the area and their nocturnal habits.

The Flying squirrel is smaller than a regular squirrel, it’s about the same size of chipmunk.  It has large eyes for its body size and is not as mobile on the ground as regular squirrel.  They feed on berries and nuts mainly, but will feed on other items as they are available.
