This is a male and female pair of Japanese dwarf flying squirrels (Pteromys volans orii), with one inside the nest and the other above. This female (inside the nest) is in oestrus. The male is standing guard. Another male approached repeatedly, resulting in heated confrontation, with the males chasing one another, occasionally leaping and gliding among trees.
