Ancestor:Descendants:

The gliding pakahe is a descendant of the golden pakahe. This new breed of the pakahe species has a higher focus on photosynthesis and has grown extended wings. These wings are not fully developed, but they do serve the gliding pakahe as gliding tools. To gain height, the pakahe catapults itself with its hind legs. While at gliding position the gliding pakahe gains an enhanced photosynthesis, due to the fact that it is closer to sun, as well as its body temperature rises. On the average it can stay in the air for twenty minutes before it reaches the floor once again. It can still crawl, but it rather spends the day with gliding, therefore this species is only feeding on infant giant pakahe when in dire need of food. Its blue coloration is only found on female gliding pakahe, and it serves to attract males.
