I had to laugh when I saw your thread title. We just spent $650 to have flying squirrels removed from our house/attic. They are a real problem here in NH (apparently) and they managed to squeeze themselves into a tiny space under our dormers.

I have to say that the pic. of Samson is pretty great though.

And Boomerang is a beautiful bird. I'm pretty sure we won't have to have Yellow Naped Amazon removal anytime soon

Lol your quote in your siggy cracks me up.

Yes any squirrel can be a huge problem for houses. I dont blame you they are hard to get rid of! Luckily Samson is a southern flying squirrel, not a northern flying squirrel (the ones you had to deal with). One person's pest is another person's pet I guess lol glad I didnt have to pay that much to get him.

Thanks! Much better alternative than hamsters and the like because of the lng life span and sweet disposition. I do love hamsters its just so hard tk find a non aggressive one or a breeder. He is four years old I dont remember. Maybe $100 bucks? He was from a breeder.

The first pic of the squirrel looks like taxidermy! How did you capture him jumping like that?!

Lol he does i suppose. I caoture motion like that with llots of good timing, patience and a good DSLR and fast shutter speed with flash. I just put him on a perch and run away so he wont jump right to me (he is very bonded to me), and then I get closer and he glides to me and I keep doing this until I get it right.

I have more in flight photos, but I have to wait for my new computer to come in to take them off my external hard drive. :)

I'm a lil iffy about Amazons lately.. lol

We have one named Sinbad where I work and the bird HATES I MEAN HATES my guts...
He was out of his cage on someones shoulder and I did pass by him a couple of times without any incidents.. well.. I went across the room to clean a cage and had my back turned... well next thing I know something drops me to the ground and is on my back laughing and attacking!

Got a nice gash under my lip that thankful didnt need stitches because of where it was and how clean the "edges" of the wound were.. but I did have to get a tetanus shot.

I refuse to work with him anymore..

Oh man! I have ALWAYS wanted a flying squirell, you have no idea how jealous I am. I honestly didnt think people bred them, I thought the only ones there are, were wild ones.
Now that I know you can own and buy them, I will have to look into it.

I would complement you on your parrot, but I am deathly afraid of birds.

My flying squirrels don't come around anymore, now that my Ringtail is in semi-residence.

Too bad. I miss them. <sigh>
