Draco volans, or the Flying Dragon, is a member of the genus of gliding lizards Draco. It can
spread out folds of skin attached to its movable ribs to form "wings" that it uses to glide from
tree to tree over distances upwards of 8 meters (25 feet); however, like all modern reptiles, it
lacks the ability to sustain powered flight, and is capable only of gliding. Its wings are brightly
colored with orange, red and blue spots and stripes, and they provide camouflage when folded. The
flying dragon can reach lengths as long as 19 - 23 cm. It feeds on arboreal ants and termites.
