When Yuki's Troop briefly moves into a hot spring, the nearby flying squirrels glide by to introduce themselves, including Tafu. The monkeys mistake the squirrels for birds of prey and react fearfully. Bunga catches Tafu, and Ono identifies him as a flying squirrel. Kion demands to know why the squirrels were trying to scare the monkeys, but Tafu explains that they'd merely wanted to welcome them to the neighborhood. He calls off the other squirrels, and Bunga lets him go.
