Indonesian Dragon

It’s a lizard with wings, which means it’s a dragon!  Reddit user biophilia curiosis of Operation Wallacea spotted this specimen in the Lambsuango Forest Reserve of Buton, Indonesia. 

Here’s another shots of this specimen when it’s not laying eggs.  Incidentally, the lines on the wings are actually the lizard’s rib cage, with the “wings” being an expansion of their chests.  The species may be related to Draco volans.
