Japanese Giant Flying Squirrel


I found this little buddy in a tiny little dead animal museum at the Botanical Gardens of Hokkaido University.

Holy schmoley. This photo doesn't do him justice. I hope to run into his relatives while in Hokkaido.

Everything in this museum started with "Japanese giant ..." Along with this Japanese giant squirrel there was a Japanese giant salamander (HUGE!), Japanese giant beetle (CRAZY!), etc... I think you get the picture.
