Abstract

The woolly flying squirrel Eupetaurus cinereus is one of the rarest and least known mammals in Asia. Previously, it has only been known from a few specimens, a few recently captured individuals, and data obtained from local residents. In 2004, two woolly flying squirrels were located in the Nanga Parbat area of Pakistan and observed for two nights. For the first time, the behavior in the wild, vocalizations, and tracks of woolly flying squirrel are described.
