Giant flying squirrel playing with a cat toy

He goes after it and then tries to eat it when he catches it.

Cute! How cool. That would be awesome to keep as a pet. Though I think it would prefer an enclosure over a cage.

I'm Fable and Ifrit's mommy. Also mommy to Carousel, Breeze, and a bunch of snakes, lizards, and spiders. Oh, and one amphibian!

Were they planning on getting one? That would be great if we could hear first-hand from owners.

I love how it looks when it's gliding all stretched out.

Do you mean by they the friend and and fellow Sybil's den member I talked about?( If so I recall her asking some Japanese brokers/breeders if they made exports (she got no for an answer))

That's too bad. We can't have Northern or Southern flying squirrels in Oregon but the giants and Japanese pygmy flying squirrels are allowed, probably just because they are pretty much impossible to get.

I don't want to shift the focus from the red giant but are Siberian flying squirrels obtainable? Heck, they are illegal in Japan probably because of their similarity to the Japanese flying squirrel causing them to hybridize with Japanese flying squirrel if they can survive Japan.

I've never seen any available or anyone have any. It might be possible to import them but I haven't looked into it.
