Description

View of a Red Giant Flying Squirrel in full flight with a second one staying alert on a branch in the background.
The red giant flying squirrel (Petaurista petaurista) is a rodent in the family Sciuridae native to Asia. A flying membrane which extends between the legs and arms allows it to glide for distances up to 246 ft (75 m) while controlling the direction of the glide.
The caption reads in the original German: Taguan.
