Gliding from tree to tree is not the genus Glaucomys' only surprising characteristic. It's also the world's first fluorescent squirrel.

    Umm, wasn't that a picture of a possum not an opossum. Opossum are gray, scraggly looking rodents with bald faces, tails, and paws. Possum are brown and cute.

    Ok, so fluorescence make them glow in uv light. Help them choose mates and keep predators at bay. But well how wud you know that other animals see the fluorescence? Stop abusing animals for stupid research
