Small nocturnal squirrel with large black eyes.
I put chunky peanut butter out for the birds and to my surprise, once dusk comes, the southern flying squirrels come "flying" in to eat it. I can hear their little squeaks from my front door. They are so fast that it's very hard to see them, but once they trust you, they allow you to get so close that you could reach out and touch them.
