Transcript of the flying squirrel

The structural adaptations of the flying squirrel has developed a good sense of balance, sail-like fur skin membrane that extends from the wrists to ankles, halo wrist bones that control the flying squirrels turning, allowing the squirrel to steer, and a fluffy tail that balances out and stabilizes the flight.
Besides the flap of skin that enables them to glide, they are small and light weight, having a lot of ability, allowing them to stay in the sky longer because of their increased size. They are also a nocturnal animal, so they have big eyes and fantastic night vision. The flying squirrels average lifespan is around six years but flying squirrels live up to fifteen years in zoos.
