Flying Lemur by platypus12 Flying Lemur by platypus12
For the #Age-of-Avians Project.

This creature is loosely based off of Momo from "Avatar: The Last Airbender." This lemur's front limbs have evolved into bat-like wings which are used for flying. Its bones which have become hollow like those of bats aid their flight. Since their front paws have become almost entirely useless for manipulating, this lemur relies almost entirely on its prehensile hind paws which can grasp virtually anything with ease. The Flying Lemur will even rely on its prehensile tail when both hind paws are occupied.

These lemurs have colonized almost every continent along with several small island including Struthioguin Island. They're omnivorous and mainly eat fruits, nuts and any animal they can catch that is no bigger than the themselves.

And what do you think of the idea of this lemur using its hind paws and tail as manipulators?
