The Flying Squirrel (2022)

The house “Les Écureuils” was missing a little note of paint, so I chose this little flying animal to decorate the entrance to this cosy little nest a little differently

The flying squirrel (or Pteromyini) is a family of rodents. They are known for their ability to glide between trees thanks to their extended skin membrane between the fore and hind limbs. This membrane allows them to jump from branch to branch with great agility and to travel long distances without touching the ground. These ‘flying squirrels’ are so named because of their resemblance to the common squirrel, but they are actually very different from the common squirrel and are not directly related. There are several species of flying squirrels, which live mainly in the tropical forests of South America, Asia and Oceania.
