We let them out for about 4 hours every day because they need to get excercise. Their favorite thing to do is jump onto the couch, from the back of the couch to the mantle, from the mantle to the back of one of the deer heads, run up to the nose, do this weird up and down and left and right thing with their head gauging the distance, and then they LEAP into the air and glide to the love seat across the room. Though... ruger's a little pudgy. We put down a twin size mattress when he's out incase he 'drops' more than 'glides'. He's on a diet. *cough*

but we leave teh cage doors open because they're litter trained. Occassionally you'll hear them run in, scrabble around in their litter box, and then run into the kitchen.

Very cool, I love any type of animal, whether it be wild that I can't touch or slightly wild that allows me to be part of its life.

Your Squirrels are very cool.

I feed the mealworms, crickets and earthworms periodically, but those are high in fat, and reduce their lifespan drastically. They only get them as the occassional treat. They love pea soup with ham though.

They can sure eat a pile of beaver meat in a short time. Sometimes it is hard to keep the cat cubbies baited between them and the weasels.

Cute little critters. I imagine they could be a handful sometimes. Worth it nonetheless I bet.

Different states require different things to own 'exotic' pets. You're not required to have a permit to own or breed Southern Flyers in Massachusetts, but I think you might have to in Rhode Island. They're prohibited to own in Connecticut, which is funny because Connecticut allows the sale and breeding of Sugar Gliders, which are prohibited in Massachusetts. :P
