Draco haematopogon, commonly known as flying dragon, is a species of lizard endemic to Southeast Asia.
The folds of skin attached to its movable ribs can expand to form "wings" that it uses to glide from tree to tree over distances up to 8 meters; However, like all modern reptiles, it lacks the capacity to support the active flight, and is capable only of gliding. Its wings are colored with yellow stripes, and provide an appropriate camouflage when they are folded. The flying dragon can reach a total length of up to 25 centimeters. It feeds on ants and termites tree.
As the often recurs with similar solutions for convergent evolution, the fossil record are like reptiles such as Kuehneosaurus Triassic, from whose ancestors have since evolved pterosaurs, able to fly on, and nothing more likely that, in a few million years, if we do not settle this case with our own hands, perhaps again flying reptiles like the pterosaurs will sail again the skies of this planet.
