The absolute highlight of my recent trip to Malaysia was seeing Colugo's flying (actually, gliding) - they are truly beautiful, weird and wonderful, and right up there in my 'top 5 favourite animals I have seen' list.
Whilst we watched dozens of flights, I didn't even attempt to photograph them. Being nocturnal, it would have involved using a flash, and I didn't want to risk dazzling them and causing a landing miscalculation!
The mothers carrying young certainly lost an awful lot more height on their glides than those without the additional weight.
Roost near our hotel room (~50' up)
