This is maverick, he is my pet flying squirrel.
He is not like any hamster you get at a pet store. Flying squirrels have big personalities and bond with their owners. He loves to climb me like a tree and run around in my shirt pockets. He really likes when I feed him fresh fruits; that is about the only time he is still. He constantly runs around climbing curtains and jumping off things to glide around. Hence the name “flying” squirrel.
Flying squirrels are nocturnal so when I am trying to sleep he is running around and making all kinds of noise in his cage. (I learned how to sleep through anything after getting him), but despite that he is a great pet. He is very easy to care for and he loves people. He is always getting into something and makes me laugh every day.
