These Flying Squirrels Are Some Of The Cutest Animals On Earth

If there were any competition for the world’s cutest animal, the Siberian flying squirrel would definitely get the first place.

Although these little animals are called flying squirrels, they do not actually fly. They sort of glide through the air with the help of membranes between their front and hind paws. With these “adaptations”, squirrels can rise to a height of over 100 meters when they have to escape from a predator or simply want to move to another tree.
