Draco volans: The flying dragon lizard

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

Over the course of thousands of years, these mini flying creatures have develoed the ability to glide up to 26 feet using their winglike extensions.

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