Pottstown wildlife control tip of the month:
About Flying Squirrel
Flying squirrels are very interesting Pottstown animal control creatures. They do not actually fly like birds, they
glide through the air between the trees. Some can even glide up to 90 meters. A styli form
cartilage is connected to their wrists forming a wing they use for gliding. They use the wrist
to navigate and their tail to stabilize the flight. In all other ways, they are similar to an
ordinary squirrel. There are about 50 Pottstown pest control species of flying squirrels around the world. They are
very small, from 8 to 12 inches, and they weigh from 4 to 6.5 ounces. Their natural habitat is
deciduous and coniferous forests. They can be found in North and South America. Flying squirrels
are omnivores, which mean they eat everything, from fruit, seeds, insects, flowers, fungi, bird’s
eggs, tree sap, spiders etc. They have a very developed sense of smell so they can easily find food.
Since they glide to travel greater distances, the energy they get from food is more used for searching
for food than for moving around. In the Pottstown wildlife removal wild, they usually live to about six years, while in captivity
they can live up to 15 years.
Flying squirrels have a lot of natural predators, such as raccoons, snakes, coyotes, feral cats, bobcats,
owls, martens, hawks etc. That is why their mortality rate is very high, and diseases also contribute to
that. They are mostly nocturnal Pottstown animal trapping creatures, because it is much easier for them to escape predators during
night. They also have a good sense of sight, adapted to night conditions. The ability to glide is a very
useful one when it comes to escaping predators. For a glide to be successful, a squirrel must be very fast
to leap and start gliding. It is also very important how it lands because if they do so at a very high angle,
they will hurt themselves.
Flying squirrels mate from February to March. They deliver young in their nests and only mothers stay with the
young. The young are born completely helpless, they do not have any senses developed, but nevertheless, they
develop fast, and by the fifth week, they are developed. First two and a half months of their lives they practice
gliding, and once they master it, they leave the nest for good. They are highly social Pottstown exterminator beings and they live in
communities, so you can find a lot of them in a single hole.
