Draco volans: The flying dragon lizard

draco volans

Draco Volans are real-life flying lizards from Southeast Asia.

These mini flying creatures have developed the ability to glide up to 26 feet, often from one tree to another, over thousands of years.

They use their wing-like extensions that form from the skin flaps on their ribs. So, they don’t actually “fly” like the dragons out of a science fiction movie, nor do they breathe fire.

Don’t get your hopes up about finding one as a pet; the Draco Volan is nearly impossible to catch.
