Well, the time finally came for the little Southern Flying Squirrel to be released! After making 8 special southern flying squirrel houses, with all the appropriate measurements (see www.flyingsquirrels.com) and special thick softwood, the boxes were hung in the Wild Things forest. His door was opened a few nights ago, and on the second night, he disappeared, into the Wild Things night! Be well little squirrel!
Thank you Maren Connolly for helping me hang the houses! Dr. Connolly is a wildlife & zoo vet at Cornell and helps a lot of the Wild Things patients.
I really thought that the little guy was going to miss his wheel, but when I opened the door, he finally decided to go...on the second night anyway!
