The gliding plent is also a descendant of the flying plent. This plent almost gave up the regular nourishment of animals. Instead, it glides through the air with its very long wings and photosynthesizes with them. It just comes down to the earth whenever it needs to drink. The legs degenerated because the gliding plent almost never touches the ground. The wing span is 5 meters.
