Indonesian Dragon

Reddit user biophilia curiosis of Operation Wallacea spotted this specimen in Buton, Indonesia.
While participating in a herpetology study we stumbled across this female laying eggs in a nest. She was found in the Lambsuango Forest reserve and was immediately released after this photograph was taken.

Here's what they look like when they're not guarding vast amounts of treasure, or raining fire down on castles.  The species may be related to Draco volans.

Oh my goodness that is precious! It's like those little dragonettes from Pern. I would want one if it wasn't the worst thing for the environment to be moving around species so that I can pretend my loft is a weyr. >>.
