Japanese And Siberian Flying Squirrels Might Be The Cutest Animals In The World

Have you ever seen these cute little furry animals? These are the Japanese flying squirrels, small mammals capable of soaring from branch to branch thanks to a furred membrane (patagium) located between the front and rear legs. Although they do not fly, these pretty mammals can hover a distance of 100 meters. This remarkable ability allows them to escape from possible predators or, quite simply, to reach other trees.

Check out this series of photos aren’t they adorable?

“The Siberian flying squirrel (Pteromys volans) is an Old World flying squirrel with a range from the Baltic Sea in the west to the Pacific Coast in the east. It is the only species of flying squirrel found in Europe. It is considered vulnerable within the European Union where it is now found only in Estonia, Finland and Latvia out of the 27 countries in the Union,” according to Wikipedia.
