Episode 278: Fanciful Flying Lemurs, aka Colugos

May 4, 2022

Nearly 150 million years ago, our earliest mammalian ancestors learned to glide from tree to tree. It is one of the most amazing adaptations next to flying mammals (aka bats). The Flying Lemurs, or Colugos, ancestors emerged nearly 85 million years ago. Stunningly, not much has changed since. These special creatures would leap to leap from tree to tree, living amongst dinosaurs and other primitive life forms. Today, there are two main species of Colugo living in South East Asia. While not currently endangered, they have declined in number. The constant loss of habitat has had devastating impacts on many animals, to include the Colugo.  Another cant miss podcast on another mind boggling species.
