Colugo

Colugos live in Southeast Asia, and are also called ‘flying lemurs’, despite not being lemurs. They are placed in a group that is very broad, and includes everything from lemurs to humans. Colugos reproduce in a manner similar to marsupials. Their babies are born mostly undeveloped, and it crawls into a pouch-like area created by the mother’s big flappy skin. The babies aren’t full grown until 2-3 years later.
