Cool facts about flying squirrels: They can glide up to 50m - that's the length of an olympic swimming pool! The squirrels 'wings' are a soft furry membrane that stretches between their wrists and ankles, and the tail is flat and furry and used as a rudder while gliding. They can steer left and right, and even make 180-degree turns. (Source: Canadian Geographic)
