Hello, I rehab wild life. All the years I have rehab I have never received a flying squirrel until now. I would like to find another flying squirrel so he could be with his own kind, he's about 3 1/2 weeks old,eventually let go in the safe setting. Please contact me if you need to rehome your flying squirrel. Thank you,Casey

    I have a male southern flying squirrel. He's about a year old. Where are you located? I would really like to find him a permanent mate, but I didnt realize how hard they are to find. My guy was a rescue, his nest was cut out of a palm tree when he was a baby and he was the only surviver.

Sorry changing the subject....i have a flyer his name is Parker. Have had him since Dec 2012, was about 5 wks old eyes still shut. Came to my lake camp had him in his cage, went outside for just abit he was in my shirt, usually he stays right with me but he jumoed off and was gone! It was around 8:30 at night, i sat outside in my lawn chair, i could hear him squeek so i would call his name. Around 1:00am yes still sitting outside with aheavy heart, i was looking in the trees, I saw him glide throughthe trees...Just Beautiful!!!!! So i said alittle prayer if this is where he is suppose to be at least he is happy. Still outside 3:00am saw him again gliding from tree to tree. Finally at 4:30 I dozed off in my chair, then I heard him behind me in one of the pine trees..I walked over extended my arm said I was sleepy lets go to bed..........he came down from the tree about 20 ft jumped on my hand an ran down my shirt snuggled next to my side went to sleep!!!! I was so amazed!!!!! Just wanted to share my adventure with Parker the flying squirrel!

I'm looking for some flying squirels. I've tried the sugar bears and they just didn't click with me. But man those flyers are awesome. Willing to pay a reasonable fee, and drive unreasonable amount ( see got no sense here). I deal mostly in reptiles so if someone is looking for snake/lizard/turtle drop me a line and maybe we can work something out. Thanks, Rachel 941-623-2232
