Real Life Dragon Found in Indonesia



The crazy part is that those lines you see running through the wings like veins are actually its ribs! Evolution did a number on these guys. They can expand and contract their chests at will to glide great distances. Only able to catch females as they were laying their eggs.The photos were taken in Buton, Indonesia, in the Lambusango Forest reserve.

  4. I want that little dragon

  5. are these available for purchase?

    ReplyDelete
  6. I sure hope they are not available for purchase. These are wild animals and for the safety of the species and the safety of humans, they should remain in the wild, where nature intended them to be.

  7. just leave them in their natural habitat, they may survive longer then, we don't need to own something, let them be free

  8. Awesome!
    And totally disgusted by the comment..."Are these available for purchase"?! What the hockey sticks? Mother Nature is not for sale folks! And, it's about time "Man" stopped trying to "control" all creatures environment. Sorry kids, a camera or *trip and exploratory *adventure seems to be the way to go for me. Please...no cages or confinement for all creatures.

    5. Its quite sad really. People love exotic pets. I have plenty of lizards and to me this one wouldn't be any different. Some say pets have a better life & live longer anyway so just stfu.
      Its cool so naturally people are goig to want it.

  9. What a beautiful creature! I pray they remain unpaid for, unpossessed, uncaged and free to be what they must be: independent spirits gracing our planet. Thank you so much for sharing her existence and then releasing her.

  13. STOP PURCHASING THE WILD LIFE !! EVERYONE WANTS ONE UNTIL THEY GET TO BIG AND YOU'S DONT WANNA TAKE CARE OF THEM !!! JUST LIKE IN FLORIDA !! ENORMOUS PYTHONS ARE TAKING OVER THE EVER GLADES BECAUSE OF STUPID PEOPLE BUYING THEM AND LETTING THEM GO.... LEAVE THE ANIMALS IN THE WILD WHERE THEY BELONG YOU FUCKN IDIOTS !!!! NO REPTILE SHOULD BE FOR SALE , DUE TO THE LACK OF KNOWLEDGE CUSTOMERS HAVE WHEN PURCHASING AND LACK OF CARE FOR THE ANIMALS !

  14. It's so fitting that the dragon was discovered during the year of the dragon.

    1. Wow. Now that is really cool, and more so that u took the time and interest rather than taking up the " I have nothing better to do than criticize hobby." There's enough drama in this once upon a time free country, slowly being destroyed each time someone decides, " oh, that sounds like a great law." Eventually we will no longer be free and that will be the fault of ignorant, and apparently un educated, bored or what have u Americans. Obama is a damn communist, taking away r freedom just like Hitler, he makes his security wear arm bands just like Hitler. Very, very soon, I feel 100% positive we will be in the same situation as a captive animal, reptile, whatever except we have a higher intelligence and some of us actually take great care of our pets. My pets get treated like family. They couldn't have a better life. Sorry, I'm suddenly venting, but my point is this, I wish we could all set greed and the need to feel in control of what once was a great country and appreciate and enjoy the beauty of what we have rather than bicker and criticize because soon, the way things r going, we'll have nothing and it will be the fault of those Americans whom act out and make rash decisions which can only be due to lack of education, boredom, and whatever caused them to think they know better than our fore fathers who gave us our freedom, not knowing it would become a pathetic abuse of what they fought4. I'd bet they're rolling in their graves. Pretty soon, Obama, aka Osama,will have us living the life of the ruling of Hitler due to American stupidity. Sorry 4 the tangent I went on. Long story short, enjoy the wonderful things we have while we have anything. Don't waste ur time on criticism. The way things r going, all will be lost. There is no other country who has what's left of our freedom. No one will save us. We're all we have and we the people have become so spoiled and blind, we the people r soon to become we the victims of Obama, with the middle name Hussein 4 hell's sake.

  15. First and foremost, the ones complaining about the everglades should do research before believing what they hear on the tele......... Have you ever stopped to think about all the pets that people own and what happen to them when the Hurricanes hit down there,,,, when released they do what comes natural and survive and look for their idea habitat.... because you or someone you know may have released or gotten rid of something because life was to chaotic for them doesn't mean that there are not responsible pet owners out there,,, we never hear the arguement about people that shouldn't have kids because of the same thing nor can we stop that, we (hard working people paying taxes) just keep paying for them and their mistakes.... I do believe that some people shouldn't own pets but I believe that there are more people that should not have KIDS.

    2. i agree with paige. i deal with reptiles and own them, every animal has wild animal in them as same with cats dogs bird, etc. people are idiots and do buy pythons without having the care and also getting scared when they get so big, but these little guys are amazing i know so amny people in the herp world would love to own these. just because u choose to own a reptile doesnt mean they r locked up in cages 24/7 . my herps be out for hours each day, and people love my herps because of how tame they are, yes they still have a wild side but if u give them the proper size tank and heat,etc, they are perfect pets.

  22. ^^Past two comments for the win. LOL

  23. So... To all those bashing pet owners. If you do some research animals that are domestic have a better survival rate being dependent on humans versus those species that are not. Human ownership of animals has not just enhanced their lives but made their species safer. Get over it. But for real tjink about it do you want to struggle to survive worried everyday ypu are going to get eaten by the next predator? No so why do you think they do.

    Read something. You might get smarter.

They told my mom she did every thing right the dog was just ment to be wild.

    3. And also if you think about it we as adults tec. We struggle a daily basis with protecting our home and our younger we don't know if we will be killed tomorrow

  24. There are good points to both sides of the argument about wild animals as pets (and thank you to the people who can spell correctly and debate without taking personal affront or throwing in unnecessary and sometimes vulgar insults). But that's not what this article is about. Can we please keep discussion related to the topic of the article- the amazing and beautiful little dragon? Thanks!

  25. I need to just never read internet comments about anything, ever. The trolling, lack of coherence, and degradation of common sense and language is downright depressing. Who has been responsible for educating some of you people?

  45. I'm really sorry but I find all you lot arguing and offending each other with such language is too hilarious (and some what cringeworthy) for words. This little guy is amazing and, as someone said earlier, it's a shame you lot just argue instead of actually commenting on the topic itself.... oh, and viola, I managed to get a point across without one swear word! Go team me!

  46. If anyone know where I can eggs plz contact me on inkthepsythe@gmail.com or bbm 2857CC52. Hate all u want, bearded dragons don't get flushed down the toilet, I went to the pet store today and cud purchase an iguana or a monitor as well as any other pet. And this is how we learn about the animals is by capturing and studying them. So yes plz, a dragon community loves a dragon, it aint draco unless its got 'wings' I always say.

  49. You can find 1-10 lizard in one three. Come to java island in indonesia if you want. Then you can get one to tamed. Its call "klarap" in here..

    ReplyDelete
  50. Woooow. Ok now that i finally got my IQ back up let clear some stuff up. One a dragon is a reptile with wings, just because you watch non fiction movies on dragons you assume it breaths fire, it may breath fire it may not its a reptile with wings its known as a Draco.
    Two pet owners and people bitching about if the draco should be up for purchases. It couldn't it's gone this long being happy and free why take that away. Thats like telling an child at the age of 15 that they can go anywhere but they have to be back inside in ten mins. Like really people they are happy they are free leave them alone yeah ill agree they are cute but i wouldnt want one around my two kids.

  51. iam from indonesia . the real name from java is "KLAWER"

  52. If you wish to domesticate these adorable yet majestic animals, so be it. It's not me who will be stopping you from going over to Indonesia and capturing one of these lizards which is highly likely that you will not be able to own due to your probable lack of experience; It'll be the delightful people of Indonesia wishing for the rare reptile to stay in their rightful home and Quarantine as well. Not many people are capable of owning ANY reptiles, let alone this reptile-with-wings, dragon-that-does-not-breath-fire, lizard-that-can-fly-in-the-sky, whatever you want to call it, which zoo-biologists hardly understand and have been known to the rest of the world for hardly a year. If you think you are capable of owning the elusive Indonesian Dragon, I'm not the one who will be stopping you. In my opinion, it WOULD be great to have a pet dragon, but I wouldn't feel right keeping this wonderful beast inside my house rather than the tropical jungle that is their home. Most people would like extraordinary animals as our pets, but there is a gut-instinct telling us that it just isn't right. In most of us anyway... Let's just avoid this topic on whether to domesticate the Dragon or not until we have more information on them to see if they WOULD be suitable as a pet or not. Please just admire the discovery instead.

  53. @The dick-headthatremainsAnonymous who said their fuck-ass message at February 12, 2013 at 5:40 PM


    Barack Obama is not a fucking communist and neither is Hitler. Hitler is a fucking dumb-ass evil Fascist and Obama is a damn right DEMOCRAT. Unlike the retarded REPUBLICANS Obama is trying his hardest to make America the best fucking country in the world despite all the trouble he's been through. Was it his fault that some kids in the fatal and horrid murder got killed by a madman? FUCK NO. Was it his fault that Boston got bombed? FUCK NO. But he has dealt with all these situations properly to you should get your dumb-ass off here if you continue to talk about politics on a FUCKING ARTICLE ABOUT FUCKING DRAGONS!

  54. I want one so bad!! It is so adorable and cute!! I would give that adorable little monster anything it wanted:) Spoiled rotten little turd burglar it would be, just like my pup! Lol definitely have to learn more about it first though. Who cares about what is right and what is wrong. We all know that at the end of the day none of our comments are going to matter. Let whomever wants a pet dragon lizard guy want one. Realistically, do you think any of us actually ever will? Highly unlikely. It's just a fantasy, and everyone has some form of them. I mean I still want a unicorn!

  55. It would be cool to have one, but they are not domestic and I don't have the space or climate to support one. Please no bad words, I am 11. They are very cool and amazing!
