This Japanese Flying Squirrel is using the snow as camouflage and trying to disguise himself as a sugarplum fairy!

Catstina says: "This is my sweet Southern Flying Squirrel, Emo, he will be 5 this year! He is a sweet boy, but is really only bonded to me. Contrary to popular belief, a Southern Flying Squirrel is not the same as a Sugar Glider. A Flyer is a rodent and a Glider is a marsupial!"
Well Emo, don't you look fancy with your little umbrella! I promise to try and not get you confused with one of them Sugar Gliders :)

Today I learned that "although flying squirrels do not hibernate, if temperatures become too severe the squirrels will enter a state of torpor until temperatures return to normal." FYI "torpor" means "a state of suspended physical powers and activities." There's something new to learn about squee creatures everyday!
