Thats not a flying squirrel. Its a Philipine flying lemur.
If you look closely, you'll notice its a perspective thing in the picture. The animal is (Sadly) dead and draped on a line, and not being held up by the guy standing about 2 meters further back.

It's pretty cool how it flares and lands on the tree!
