IC Flying Squirrel
Incredible Creatures Collection
Despite their name, flying squirrels are not capable of traditional flight. Instead, they are able to glide between trees using what’s known as a “patagium,” which is a parachute-like membrane. They are found all over the world, most commonly in forests and woodlands.
Scientific Name:Family Sciuridae
Characteristics:There are nearly fifty known species of flying squirrel found around the world. Can you determine which species this hand crafted and lifelike model represents?
Size and Color:Most flying squirrels are brown with shades of tan, and their gliding membrane is often white. Standing 5 inches tall and 6.5 inches wide, this figurine is as tall as a soda can and a bit wider than the length of a dollar bill.
The Flying Squirrel is part of the Incredible Creatures® collection.
