A Midsummer Night’s Stroll

A Midsummer Night’s Stroll

With the summer heat, a lot of people are walking later in the evening when it’s cooler. Have you ever heard high-pitched squeaks reminiscent of a bike wheel in need of lubrication when you walk after dark? The sounds are calls of Southern flying squirrels, a nocturnal woods inhabitant that is hardly ever seen unless you shine a powerful lantern up in the trees. You may catch reflections from their large eyes, evolved so as to catch dim light.
