A Spotted giant flying squirrel (Petaurista elegans) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Upon birth, they weight 1 grams (0 lbs) and measure 2.7 cm (0′ 2″). They are a member of the Sciuridae family (genus: Petaurista). An adult Spotted giant flying squirrel grows up to a size of 39.8 cm (1′ 4″).

They weight in at 62 kg (137 lbs), which is obviously highly individual, and reach an average age of 75 years.

The spotted giant flying squirrel (Petaurista elegans), also known as the lesser giant flying squirrel, is a species of rodent in the family Sciuridae. It is found in hill and mountain forests at altitudes of 200–4,000 m (660–13,120 ft) in Southeast Asia north to central China and the east Himalayan region, although the northern populations sometimes are regarded as separate species as the grey-headed giant flying squirrel (P. caniceps), Chindwin giant flying squirrel (P. sybilla) and P. marica. Two of these, as well as a few other populations, lack the white spots on the upperparts for which it is named. Although a large flying squirrel, it is a relatively small giant flying squirrel.Like other flying squirrels, it is nocturnal and able to glide (not actually fly like a bat) long distances between trees by spreading out its patagium, skin between its limbs. A rather noisy species that has a drawn-out cry that often can be heard at night, it spends the day in a tree hollow, or, less often, on a cliff ledge or in a nest made of vegetation in a tree. It feeds on fruits, seeds, leaves, buds and flowers, and has one, occasionally two, young per litter.
