These ant-eating dragons use retractable ribcage wings
This reptile’s ribs have evolved for flight assistance rather than to help with breathing and form the frame of the wings. Being able to glide is vital for finding food, travelling without the risk of meeting ground-based predators and defending territory.
This species parachutes up to ten metres (32.8 feet) to chase away a competing male, steering with its slender tail to ensure an accurate landing. Males protect two to three trees that they consider ‘home’, only allowing fertile females to trespass on their patch.
