Don’t mistake that flying squirrels actually fly. It’s wrong! They can glide as they have membranes that are located between their front and back legs. They have the ability to travel over 100 meters to escape from a predator or to just reach their next tree.

The Japanese and Siberian squirrels are really cute and plump. You can only see them in Japan and Europe from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific coast.  They are in a unique category of Old World Flying Squirrels. Even though these squirrels do not hibernate, they can sleep up to days on end during the winter months.

Here are the adorable squirrels.
