What did I just catch?
 
I catch a lot of mice in the barn and in the garage. Once in a while I catch one in the attic. Yesterday, I got this in a mouse trap. What is it? It looks like a squirrel but smaller. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic. Thanks.

Hard to say. Stretch it out, add a measuring tape or dollar bill for sizing, and find a better camera?
Might be a "ground squirrel"?

Rocky: Hey Bullwinkle, we're in real trouble now!
Bullwinkle: Oh good, Rocky! I hate that artificial kind!:)

Thank you. I just googled a picture of a flying squirrel and it does look like that. Also the tail was flat. I've lived in NJ for a long time and have never seen one of these. First time for everything. Now I need to figure out how the little bastard got in.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

You better hope Bullwinkle doesn't come looking for him! He can be very destructive. There's nothing worse than a Bullwinkle in a china shop. Or your livingroom for that matter.:)

DangerMouse 10-26-2011 01:56 PM

Wow... I didn't think they were IN NJ.??

Definitely a flying squirrel.
Two years ago Christmas night this little fellow came for a visit. Luckily we caught him before the dogs did.
He looks browner than yours.
We kept him for a couple of months during the worst of the cold weather and let him go in March.
