Flying Squirrel Central, a guide and web directory to the many species of flying squirrels. Here you'll find over 150 links to species data, photographs, distribution maps, pet infoeven stuffed animals and poems. The idea is to collect
everything about flying squirrels, sort it and review it.
What information is on this site?
General Information gives non-species specific information. Much of the meat, however, comes in the
North American Flying Squirrels section, which covers the Northern and Southern Flying Squirrels of the US and Canada. A much wider range of species can be found in
Asian and Other Flying Squirrels. There you'll meet such gliders as the
Giant Flying Squirrel, the enormous and rare
Wooly Flying Squirrel and even information on
Marsupial Flying Squirrels, unrelated to placental flying squirrels, but an amazing case of convergent evolution.

Academic section has research papers from all over the world.
Flying Squirrel Merchandise has stuffed animals and dog-frisbees. (My dog is still getting over the fact that "rabbits" in America climb trees; flying "rabbits" would probably precipitate a nervous breakdown.) Lastly, "Inspired by the Flying Squirrel" houses any poems, music, inspirational material, and so forth I find.
