Philippine Flying Lemur

About Philippine Flying Lemur

The flying lemur looks like it has a cloak. It is actually a thin elastic sheet of skin. It uses it to sail through the air. It’s flight membrane is so large it can glide through the air for more than 400 feet (125m). Gliding is a quick way to travel from tree to tree. The females give birth to a single baby each time they breed and carry them around until their weight makes it too hard to glide.
