A Philippine flying lemur (Cynocephalus volans) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 62 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 35 grams (0.08 lbs) and measure 25.4 cm (0′ 10″). They are a member of the Cynocephalidae family (genus: Cynocephalus). An adult Philippine flying lemur grows up to a size of 38 cm (1′ 3″).

The Philippine flying lemur or Philippine colugo (Cynocephalus volans), known locally as kagwang, is one of two species of colugo or “flying lemurs”. It is monotypic of its genus. Although called a flying lemur, it cannot fly and is not a lemur. Instead, it glides as it leaps among trees.The kagwang belongs to the order Dermoptera that contains only two species, one of which is found in the Philippines, while the other, the Sunda flying lemur, is found in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. Recent research from genetic analysis suggests two other species, the Bornean flying lemur and the Javan flying lemur, may exist, as well, but they have yet to be officially classified.Both species of Dermoptera are classified under the superorder Euarchonta, which includes treeshrews and primates, as well as an extinct order of mammals, the Plesiadapiformes.
