Despite their name, flying squirrels are not capable of traditional flight. Instead, they are able to glide between trees using what's known as a patagium, which is a parachute-like membrane. They are found all over the world, most commonly in forests and woodlands. Most flying squirrels are brown with shades of tan, and their gliding membrane is often white.
