The Flying Dragon
Draco volans, or the Flying Dragon, is a species of gliding lizard found in Indonesia. They have folds of skin attached to their ribs that form wings and can glide for distances of up to 8 meters (25 feet). Their wings are brightly colored with orange, red and blue spots and stripes and provide camouflage when folded. They are amazing little creatures.

rhamphotheca: Eastern Indigo Snake
North America’s longest snake is the Eastern Indigo Snake (Drymarchon couperi); males can reach 8 ft (2.5 m) or more in length. Found through much of the southeast, these nonvenomous snakes live in different habitats depending on the season. In the winter they prefer sandhill habitats, where they den in gopher tortoise burrows (sometimes cohabiting with the burrow’s owner). In the spring they shift to their summer breeding locations in riparian and wooded creek bottoms. When startled or threatened they’ll flatten their neck, hiss and rattle their tail, but they’re actually fairly docile and don’t often bite.
