The Siberian flying squirrel is an Old World flying squirrel found across Eurasia.
Their limbs are relatively short and thick and their hind feet are significantly larger than their forefeet.
Therefore, in the present study, we characterized the habitats of P.
A female Siberian flying squirrel weighs about 150 grams, the males being slightly smaller on average.
The most common sign of their presence is their droppings, which resemble orange-yellow rice grains and are often found beneath or on top of their nest.

Fully grown, dik-diks stand about 12-16 inches tall at the shoulders and weigh 7-15 pounds.
Dik-diks are herbivores whose diet mainly consists of foliage, shoots, fruit, and berries.
Their noses also help in managing with the heat.
Dik-diks stand about 30–40 centimetres at the shoulder, are 50–70 cm long, weigh 3–6 kilograms and can live for up to 10 years.
Siberian chipmunks usually live solitary lives, but during the winter they create a burrow, which they often share with another chipmunk.
he overall coloration of its coat is yellow to brown.
This species is native to Russia in northern European, Siberia to Sakhalin and Kunashir, extreme eastern Kazakhstan, northern Mongolia, northern and central China, Korea, and in Japan in Hokkaido, Iturup, Rishiri, Rebun, Teuri, and Yagishiri. It has been introduced at one confirmed locality, Karuizawa, on Honshu.
The Siberian chipmunk exhibits sexual dimorphism, and size and body proportions are the only way to distinguish younger chipmunks from older ones.
The Siberian Chipmunk has also been bred in captivity for many years to be kept as pets.
Tarsiers are lemurlike in being nocturnal and having a well-developed sense of smell.
The eyes and placenta are also simiiform in structure.
It is a member of the approximately 45-million-year-old family tarsiidae, whose name is derived from its elongated "tarsus" or ankle bone.

They are widely distributed across the southern part of Africa, and although common nowhere, can be found in almost any type of habitat, from the Namib Desert to boulder-strewn outcrops in South Africa to thick forest.
Their ears and eyes are large, and, when alarmed, they run on their toes swiftly along paths they construct and maintain, sometimes leaping over obstacles.
Gestation lasts two months, and litters contain one or two well-developed young.
The Somali elephant shrew went unobserved from 1968 to 2020 but was rediscovered by a group of scientists in Djibouti.
