Draco volans: The flying dragon lizard

Looking like the dragons out of a science fiction movie, Draco Volans are real-life flying lizards.

These mini flying creatures have developed the ability to glide up to 26 feet throughout thousands of years using their winglike extensions. So, they don’t actually fly, nor do they breathe fire.

But don’t get your hopes up about finding one as a pet. Located in Indonesia, the Draco Volan is nearly impossible to catch.
