Red and White Giant Flying Squirrel

It always seems to work out like this: Go out looking for snakes...end up seeing some other interesting creature from a different class! I've seen these 白面鼯鼠 at a distance in the canopy at times, but this was the closest I've ever gotten to one. Such a cute and fascinating animal!

Yeah - and they are tame. Really tame, which is why they are easy to hunt.

It's such a lonely ride...

But they are not good to eat. The meat is stinky and foul to the tongue.
Why do I f'n bother?

I can confirm this. Definitely an acquired taste, which I have no interest in developing. :noway:

I like it. Reminds me of hare (which a lot of people don't like eating, either).

That's a protected animal folks.
I can remember the fourth of July runnin' through the backwood bare.
And I can still hear my old hound dog barkin' chasin' down a hoodoo there

Cool! Nice find.
The prizes are a bottle of f*!@#$% SCOTCH and a box of cheap f!@#$#$ CIGARS!

Too many people! Almost all of the world's problems are due to overpopulation. The rest are due to religion.

50% of the world's wild animals have disappeared in the last 50 years. Did you eat them, or eat their house?
