The Flying Squirrel is a family of 44 squirrels. They are not able to fly like birds, but can glide from tree to tree because of a membrane that stretches from fingers to ankles. They are actually nocturnal, which means that they sleep in the daytime and come out of their nests at night to eat and avoid day-hunting birds.
They are found throughout North America.
