Flying squirrel babies!

These 4 adorable little ones came in yesterday. The nest was in an air conditioner that was removed from a window. Luckily Maddy and Melinda were on the ball....they took great care of them overnight until bringing them here!
1 boy and 3 girls all doing great.
The little boy already has his eyes open and the girls will follow soon I'm sure.

These guys will definitely be wintering over. Lisa already has a few and thanks to Sue, a brand new outdoor enclosure to put them all in, so I ended up bringing them over to Lisa last evening ....although I hated to part with them even after a day! Unlike the gray's and red's, these guys are colony animals so she will incorporate them into her growing they are better off with her. It's looking like there will be about 12 flyers moving into the new pen now!


  1. AAAAAAH, I'm going to explode!! Too much cuteness! Especially that third pic down - OMG! Too bad you can't keep these for a while, but you do have your hands full with the non-flying squirrels, I'm sure.

  2. ooooh!!! adorable!!! they're lucky to be with YOU for safe-keeping!

  3. I know! I really did hate parting with them....but I a colony living in my woods so chances are they'll be back in the spring for release! :)

  4. we miss them so much-- but happy to see they are settling into a new colony (and who knew flying squirrels were so photogenic?)
