Fact
Fiction

OK, no fair! This one is sort of a trick question. There is such a thing as a flying snake, but it doesn't actually fly. What it does is more like parachuting. When you watch this video of the paradise tree snake (Chrysopelea paradise), it does look like it's flying. But, it's not. It's actually parachuting from one tree to another. Watch the flying snake in the video below to see how it glides through the air. You'll also see another gliding reptile, the flying dragon lizard.
