A staple of wildlife photographers and Sunday-night nature programmes, the flying squirrel is one of the most exquisite examples of evolution.

But if this video's anything to go by, its less refined relations are determined to defy natural selection... and gravity.

Instead of gliding effortlessly from tree to tree, this red squirrel hurls itself out of a window and plummets four storeys to the yard below.

Secret Squirrel your identity has been compromised! Return to headquarters immediately!!

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

He must be a relative of Suicide Squirrel, who keeps running in front of my car.  (No fatalities yet).

I am another anonymous face in the crowd. I am just another tiny wheel in the machinery of the world I live in.

I think suicidal squirrels are one of the first signs of the apocalypse :w00t:
