Tajar, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tajar
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Southern Flying Squirrel
Home: Kountze, Texas, USA
   Tajar is an awesome animal and a good little friend. When I am feeling bad she will calmly lay on me for hours letting me stroke her soft fur. But if I'm just being lazy, she knows it! She'll hop off me and go racing through the house, usually to climb a wall and wait for me to come get her. It's a little game we play.

    Flying squirrels are usually nocturnal - that's why she has those big, pretty dark eyes, so she is awesome company when I can't sleep at night. But she even will come out for petting during the day when flying squirrels would normally sleep. That is how I was able to get this picture of her. She is very, very sweet and special to me.
