No, this is not a photoshop trick. A Reddit user by the name of Biophilia_curiosus captured this insanely cool species of gliding lizard in Buton, Indonesia.

According to Wikipedia, it’s called Draco volans, or the Flying Dragon. They are native to the southwest tropical forests of Asia and India, including Borneo and the Philippine Islands.

In order to move from one place to another, Flying Dragons will spread the skin flaps along their abdomens and glide out of trees or from other high areas. When the Flying Dragon is about to take off, it will point its head toward the ground. Interestingly, they never glide when it is raining or when it is windy.
