Flying lemur

Flying lemur, or colugo, nocturnal mammal (genus Cynocephalus) of the East Indies and Philippines, similar in appearance but unrelated to the lemurs. It has flaps of skin running between fore- and hindlimbs that enable it to glide 150 yd (137 m) from one tree to another. Its food consists of leaves, buds, and flowers.
