Flying squirrels live in the wild in the Pacific Northwest of North America and can also be found living at a few zoos around the country. They like to eat fruit, nuts, fungi and bird eggs.
You can learn all about the unique flying squirrels by visiting the website of the National Wildlife Federation online. These squirrels live in colonies so are often found in large groups in the wild and in zoos. They look quite similar to bats and are nocturnal animals that hunt at night to find food. Their noses lead them to food by their keen sense of smell.
