I was off by about an inch. I saw this impossibly little thing, and my first thought was "dwarf"?? Then I peered closer and saw the little flaps from wrist to ankle. Wee baby flying squirrel. I don't know how he even spotted it on the ground.
He's so little it's scary. Tips the scales at 10 grams (1/3 ounce). But so far, so good. He scared me after the first couple of feedings--as soon as his little tummy is full, he immediately goes sound asleep.
I must really enjoy 2:00 a.m. I keep finding excuses to get up. Mostly to go feed something.
Wish me luck!
