Wild Colugos, Singapore Zoo

The Colugo or flying lemur has never been successfully raised in captivity before. However, there is a sizeable wild population of these weird animals living in Zoo and Night Safari grounds. Babies cling to their mothers' bellies. This is their usual resting position, vertical against tree trunks for camouflage.

      What would be the chances of me seing one if I came over to the zoo?

      Probably a much higher chance than seeing one in the 'wild'. In the day they just cling vertically to tree trunks so you have to look hard.
