    Default tiny dragon newly discovered

    Researchers in Indonesia have discovered what looks like a teeny tiny dragon. As... yet, we have no information on whether they guard small piles of gold or attack miniature castles.
    This was a nesting female found in the Lambsuango Forest reserve and was immediately released after this photograph was taken.

    Dracos are really cool creatures !! We have a few species in India. You can see how it is possible for people from ancient times to imagine dragons based on such creatures and dinosaur bones.

    That's really neat! Does it actually fly or is it more of a glider?

    It is a glider. The glider is made up of webbed ribs.
