Undoubtedly, These Flying Squirrels Are the Cutest Fluffy Animals on Earth

These spotted furry little squirrels are definitely the cutest animals to looks at. They’re called Flying Squirrels, even though they don’t actually fly . They glide using a furry membrane or patagium between their front and rear legs. This membrane helps them glide over 100 meters, either if it is to escape a predator or just reach another tree.

Their body is covered in a grey fur in the back, and white in the stomach area. They are super fluffy and their tiny pink nose adds the cuteness even more. Their skin helps them stay warm in winter. They don’t hibernate during this time, but they can sleep for a several days at a time. They are usually found in Japan and in Europe, from the Baltic Sea to the Pacific coast, and fall under the category of Old World flying squirrels.

Photographer Focuses His Camera on Squirrels to Capture Their Emotions, and the Results Are Adorable

Photographing squirrels isn’t an easy task. Whenever they feel threatened by the presence of humans, they start running with all they got. However, Johnny Kääpä has dedicated most of his time to do that and has managed to pull out some incredible shots. Johhny has been photographing squirrels for a couple of years. What he looks for in a photograph is the feeling it gives out. Now dealing with squirrels it can be quite challenging to be able to capture their emotions, but this talented photographer didn’t fail to serve.

“I have no idea if the squirrels have a lot of emotions, except hunger, fear, and sleep, but I would like to think they do. And I always look for pictures that seem to express those feelings,” said the photographer. He had taken thousands of shots and it’s hard to select some out of his collection.
