Dlium Fringed flying dragon (Draco fimbriatus)


The fringed flying dragon has sails on each side of the chest that are connected to the arms by and can be spread out like wings to glide through the air. The male has a small sail under the head, triangular in shape, white with bright yellow corners.

The screens on both sides of the body can be stretched or folded. This screen is a thin skin supported by six ribs. This screen is used with a chuckle to keep it from falling too quickly when sliding from one tree to another.

The flying dragon will look for open branches to prepare to glide, then push its body forward and stretch the screen. They are able to glide from tree to tree through the air up to a distance of 60 meters. This action is carried out when they feel threatened, being chased by predators and hunting.

This species eats small insects. Males will compete for territory to attract female lizards by moving their bodies up and down while flipping the sail on their brightly colored chin. Female lizards will look for crevices in trees to lay eggs.
