Fig 1
   

Family : Agamidae
Species : Draco haematopogon
Size (snout to vent) : 9 cm
Size (total length) : 27 cm

The Red-barbed Gliding Lizard is a relatively small, slender species of Draco which occurs in lowland, primary rainforest and adjacent secondary forest. It has been observed on medium- size tree trunks as well as slender saplings, feeding on ants.

The long, pointed gular flag of the male is reddish at the base, with a large, rounded, dark blotch : this grades to pale yellow at the tip.  The gular flag of the female is shorter and truncated. The lappets are reddish. The upper side of the patagium is dark, with numerous yellow-gold spots and flecks.

Draco haematopogon ranges from southern Thailand and Peninsular Malaysia to the islands of Sumatra, Java and Borneo. It is absent from Singapore.
