Can Any Snakes Fly?

There is a reptile called the flying snake, but there is no snake that can really fly.

The flying snake lives in trees, and when danger threatens, it can flatten its body and leap from the tree, gliding to another tree or to the ground.

The snake’s flattened body acts like a parachute, so that as it glides through the air, it does look like it’s “flying.”
