"I am hoping someone can give me some input to an issue we are having with our flying squirrel " squirrely". She is approx. 4 1/2 yrs. now we have had her since she was really tiny we found her on the ground in our yard she was so small we had to bottle feed her. She has always been the best little pet. Recently however she has become aggressive with us. She has a nice large tall pen and is released in a room at night to glide around. We are looking for some insight into why she has become aggressive. It's been about 6-8 weeks now. Do they go through a hormonal maturity or heat cycles that could cause this and if so how long does their cycle last or could there be something wrong with her such as a brain tumor. I have to say we only recently noticed that her nipples down her belly are visible. We don't know what to do. Is there a vet we can contact that is familiar with flying squirrel behavior. Nothing has changed in her surroundings that should have caused this change in her does anyone know if this is typical? Any info is greatly appreciated. We are so worried about her. And wonder if she needs to be introduced or released back into the wild. Thank you for any help."
