The Giant Flying Squirrel is a spectacular sight when it’s gliding from place to place. This species is highly nocturnal and very hard to spot. It has very similar markings on the upper part of its body like the black and yellow Giant Squirrel but has pale under parts.  Very little is known of their social organization. A property in Kandy is known to have a colony of these squirrels and dusk is the best time to spot them.
