If I only had a white squirrel for my video.......

Hello, My slow motion backyard video was reviewed by a mammal expert, Steve Harris.

Please view this Discovery Wildlife article, click the video below.

Squirrel Video

Steve Harris reports, "Your footage, however, does seem to show the animal accelerating in mid-air, though we don’t know the rate of acceleration or what it is gaining in distance."

"animal accelerating in mid-air"? Isn't this squirrel tail propulsion?

The squirrel's tail developing aerodynamic thrust....... something previously unknown.

Is this a scientific discovery?

Best Regards, Bill Earl
