Flying squirrel typhus

Flying squirrel typhus is a condition characterized by a rash of early macules, and, later, maculopapules.[1]

The flying squirrel Glaucomys volans can transmit epidemic typhus.[2]

Apart from humans, flying squirrels are the only currently known reservoir for Rickettsia prowazekii.[3]
