Normally brown on its back, and white on both its belly and the bottom side of its fury membrane. The southern flying squirrel is the size of a chipmunk. They have large dark, bulging eyes that are well adapted for night vision. They also have something called "feelers" which are sensitive whiskers used to make nocturnal travel easier.
Found throughout eastern parts of North America and the south eastern parts of Canada.
These squirrels are most active between dusk and dawn.
