It's a bird. It's a plane. It's a…lizard? Native to the jungles of Southeast Asia, the Draco lizard uses its “wings” and tail to glide through the air. Over thousands of years, these incredible creatures adapted the ability to fly from tree to tree in order to evade predators lurking on jungle floors.
