Frightful Fridays! Mashup Marathon! Flying Squirrelobo

Next up in the mashup marathon is the flying squirrelobo, combining the graceful not-quite-flying ability of the flying squirrel with the hunting prowess of the wolf. See you in an hour with another creature!

What appears to be a wolf with flaps of skin connecting its limbs to its body drops down from a tree and glides to a landing.

Special Abilities
Glide (Ex) A flying squirrelobo can launch itself from height to gain a fly speed of 40 (poor maneuverability) for 1 round per 10 feet of elevation that it starts its flight.

Not content with a rodent with gliding ability, flying squirrelobos' creators wanted a predator with limited flight capability. Flying squirrelobos possess claws that allow them to climb most surfaces but are not powerful enough to use as weapons. They attack unsuspecting prey by climbing trees or cliffs and gently and quietly descending upon them, but they have no problem running down prey if they start at the same level.
