Something to add to the list of things that live in palm trees

While trimming palms we've all found a wide variety of wildlife. But this was a first for me...flying squirrels! The first one I must have knocked out with when I dropped a frond. As I'm standing on the ladder, I notice something crawling back up the tree. At first I thought, mouse. But it had this unusual looking face with big eyes and a flat, furry tail. It doesn't seem too concerned with me. It stops for look where I notice the large patch of skin between the front leg and body. It then continues on up where it came from.

Got to the next tree and this time one comes gliding out into a nearby oak tree. I never knew we had these critters down here. I always thought they were, well squirrel size. But these guys are pretty small.
