The Flying Squirrel is an average-sized rodent which is narrowly linked to the squirrels originated in across grasslands and woodlands around the world. They tend to be faintly bigger in size and shape than the other normal squirrel.
They cannot fly in reality, although they can be flying for a extraordinary length of time. Instead of flying, they move through the atmosphere by gliding between the trees, with the best recorded glide of them being virtually 90 meters.
They have a fuzzy, flexible membrane that stretches between their legs. When the flying squirrel requires getting away rapidly, it opens its legs and arms out and utilizes the membrane like a parachute. They also have big eyes, and broad crushed tails.
There are virtually 50 diverse species of them discovered in rainforests around the world. The biggest species is discovered in Pakistan and the least species is the pygmy flying squirrel which is found in the jungles of Borneo and Malaysia.
