Can Glis Glis Swim ?
Mrs G from Beaconsfield sent us a letter last week;
“Dear Glis Glis expert,
We have a little stream at the bottom of our garden and this morning saw what was definitely not a water vole swimming from one bank to the other.
It looked more like a squirrel than anything else but was far smaller.
After researching on Google Mr. G is convinced it was a Glis Glis.
Please can you settle an argument for us – Can glis glis swim or not?
Well Mrs. G
Although glis glis prefer not to be in water, they are in fact very good swimmers due to their large feed and being able to use their bushy tail as ballast
Although the video below is a squirrel, it demonstrates how glis glis swim too,
