Japanese Flying Squirrels Are Probably The Cutest Animals On Earth

Like Dosed on FB: 
These adorable flying squirrels are found in Japan and fall under the category of Old World flying squirrels. They don’t hibernate, but in the winter, they sometimes sleep for several days at a time.

Flying squirrels don’t actually fly: they glide using a furry membrane or patagium between their front and rear legs. Using this membrane, squirrels have been known to glide over 100 meters, either to escape a predator or just reach another tree!
