N.B. To people in many places, certainly the whole East Coast of the US, a gray squirrel is a "regular", i.e. common, squirrel. But in (at least) the Mountain states, there are no gray squirrels! Plain ol' normal squirrels are red! This surprised everyone who ever visited me in Colorado from back East.

Think this person is British (Hence Grey not Gray). Here in the UK invasive Grey Squirrels have almost completely wiped out native Red Squirrels except for a few strongholds in the North, Isle of Wight etc. And most people call them Grey Squirrels as the Reds are 'our' squirrels...

To people in Maine on the East Coast of the U.S. a regular squirrel is red. A grey squirrel lives on power lines in the city.

How is that thing different than a flying squirrel? Pictorially speaking, I mean.

Flying squirrels have much more distinct hind legs that extend past their "wings", whereas sugar gliders just have little pink feet. Their faces are also very different; in this picture, the big giveaway is the badger-like stripes, whereas a flying squirrel is a solid color all over. And finally and perhaps most tellingly, thus little guy here doesn't have as floofy a tail!

I like these quizzes. I learn a lot from them. There are animals which I've seen before, but I never knew their name in English or at all. And then there are those for whose existence I didn't even know.

Some people keep sugar gliders as pets (where exotic species are allowed). They are a riot, and FULL of energy. (Cute, too!) Check them out YouTube for videos; there are a ton!

Um, sugar gliders are **terribly** unsuitable pets. In short, captivity is bad for both the animal and the owner; sugar glider pets are puppy milled, live alone in small cages (whereas natural habitat is extensive and they live in big social groups), and as nocturnal creatures are rambunctious and noisy at night.

The sugar glider trade has been banned in many countries. Where still legal, many retailers have stopped selling them.

There are plenty of ways to feel special without inflicting oneself on a tiny cute unusual animal.

I think ant bear should be an acceptable answer for the giant anteater. As a non-native speaker I only knew "ant bear" and therefore didn't get it right unfortunately. "The giant anteater (Myrmecophaga tridactyla), also known as the ant bear, is a large insectivorous mammal native to Central and South America. " -Wikipedia
