The Animal that Confused Scientists (Part 1 of 2)

Sometimes God’s imagination is so creative that even the scientists are stumped by the results. Find out more on today’s Creation Moments Minute.

Some animals have scientists all confused. One such example is the colugo, an animal that scientists tried to place in three different families before they finally gave up and designated a whole new family just for that one strange creature.

Scientists agree that the colugo is a mammal. But beyond that, they’re stumped. For a while they had classified the colugo as a bat because it has a membrane that it uses for gliding. But upon closer inspection, it was clear that the colugo was not a bat. The colugo has both front and hind legs and a tail that are all used to stretch the membrane of the cat‑sized animal to a width of four feet.

More about the colugo on our next program.
