ABSTRACT
Flying Dragon, a tree-dwelling lizard that can glide through the air from tree to tree. It grows to about eight inches (20 cm) long. A thin membrane covers false ribs extending outward from the flying dragon's body. Supported by this membrane, the animal can glide 50 feet (15 m) or more after leaping from a tall tree. It can turn in the air, and even return to the tree from which it jumped. The flying dragon feeds on insects and spiders. There are about 40 species of flying lizards in southeast Asia. Most are brightly colored.
