The Black bearded Flying Dragon (Draco melanopogon) is a common inhabitant of the forest on Pulau Tioman, Malaysia. It uses skin flaps over its ribs which can spring out to form “wings” to help it glide between trees in the forest. That way they can avoid venturing to the forest floor where there are many more predators. Except of course when the female (pictured) has to lay her eggs.
