The Paradise Tree Snake (Chrysopelea paradisi). In Borneo there is the largest number of gliding animals from gliding squirrels to gliding lizards and frogs. The snake is one of them. It climbs a tree in search if a prey and when reaching the top, it flattens its body and thrusts it into the air gliding in a chosen direction. Depending on a tree it can glide a distance of up 100m.
