ITEM #: 12505 Flying Squirrel Ornament by Old World Christmas
Material: Glass & Glitter
An Old World Christmas ornament. It isn't just an urban legend! There really are flying squirrels, in fact 44 species of them! They don't fly like birds do with wings, but instead glide with a membrane that links their wrists and ankles. They use their long tail as a rudder, directing their flight in more of a "controlled fall". They are nocturnal and omnivorous, eating mostly plants, seeds, bugs and flowers. This flying squirrel is a fun ornament for any young child or adult alike!
