Look at its funny little hands
Fun fact! Flying lemurs (the Colugo being another) are a unique mammal taxon that uses its skin flaps to glide from tree to tree. So technically they are neither flying, nor lemurs!
What’s cool though, is that while solid DNA evidence of this is piecemeal (as far as I know - science tumblrs feel free to contribute), flying lemurs are thought to be descendants of the last common ancestor of basal primates (our ancestors), and order Chiroptera (bats).
So if you think about it, this little guy literally is Batman.
