Red And White Giant Flying Squirrel - Petaurista alborufus lena 

It is clear that I can not hide my love for flying squirrels. This is the Taiwanese subspecies Petaurista alborufus lena (Rodentia - Sciuridae), which appears to be genetically different from mainland forms in China.

This species has low fecundity, with litter sizes of 1-2. They feed on acorns, other nuts, fruits and leafy vegetation, as well as insects, larvae and perhaps bird eggs.
