See Now: Real-Life Flying Dragons Found In Indonesia

But hey, it seems things aren’t too late yet.

Believe it or not, I recently found out there are actually flying dragons in Indonesia.

They are, however, not as massive as you probably imagine in your head. Also, they aren’t technically dragons since they’re classified as lizards. Yet, these tiny creatures actually have wings and can indeed fly. So yep, that’s pretty close to the real deal.

The Draco Volan, also known as the flying dragon, is a gliding lizard.

Usually found in Indonesia, these lizards are called Draco Volans and they look really awesome.

They can easily glide in the air from one tree to another and they use that ability to avoid predators, find food, and even impress female lizards. According to the video feature below, they can even soar and reach trees over 160 feet away. That’s really amazing.

Draco Volans measure about 8 inches long.

They measure at least around 8 inches in length and, fortunately, they don’t breathe fire so we humans really don’t have much to worry about.

Still, I probably won't get one for my boy. I'm not sure I want these dragons lying (and flying) around our home. Besides, we have enough lizards already!
