The Japanese Flying Squirrel Is Likely One Of The Most Adorable Animals In The World

Have you ever seen these adorable little hairy animals? These are the Japanese flying squirrels, tiny mammals capable of soaring from branch to branch thanks to a furred membrane (patagium) located between the front and rear legs. Even Though they do not fly, these pretty mammals can soar a distance of 100 meters. This amazing ability allows them to escape from predators or, simply, to reach other branches. Check out this series of photos, aren’t they amazing?
