The Essence of the Northern Flying Squirrel

The Essence of the Northern Flying Squirrel

Overachiever male norhern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus) moves a pine cone, half his weight, from one cavity cache to another in the middle of the night in winter spruce forest near Seeley Lake in north-central Montana, USA. Several evolutionary innovations in the muscular and neural control of its wing membrane allow for exceptional versatility in flying squirrels gliding and weight lifting abilities. See Cirque de la Lune for the flying squirrel aerodynamics features.
