I kinda think it is shopped.  Took the one they found in the market and made it look majestic and not dead and destined for a restaurant and/or pharmacy.

"The specimen of the Laotian giant flying squirrel was incidentally found on display for sale at a bush meat market in Central Lao PDR about a year ago."

They have red necks in Laos?

I was surprised that for an article about 4ft long flying squirrels that the article and the internet contain exactly zero images of 4ft long flying squirrels.

I guess if I were a flying squirrel, I'd have to have lots of faith as well.

It'd have to be named the "Ohah' Squirrel. 'Cause on landing. it's go, "Oh! ah,"

I wonder what it would taste and smell like after landing on your face.

Rednecks know no geographic region or socio-economic bracket.. they are everywhere.

This sucks. I bought a book that supposedly covers all the squirrel species in the entire world. It's already obsolete.
