Flying Dragon Lizard

Draco volans, or the Flying Dragon, is a member of the genus of gliding lizards Draco. It can spread out folds of skin attached to its movable ribs to form "wings" that it uses to glide from tree to tree over distances upwards of 8 metres (26 ft); however, like all modern reptiles, it lacks the ability to sustain powered flight, and is capable only of gliding. Its wings are brightly coloured with orange, red and blue spots and stripes, and they provide camouflage when folded. The flying dragon can reach up to 19–23 centimetres (7.5–9.1 in) in length.

Gliding lizard...closest thing i have ever seen to a dragon...well comodo...but he has no wings....just poisonous spit...so if there were ever really "dragons"....i could visualize more than one type or species & sizes too...really kool to see!

Looks like the new Dragon in 'Game of Thrones' on HBO!!
