Sunda flying lemur is brownish or mottled greyish on the upper side and a paler shade on the underside. They have a fully furred membrane called a patagium that stretches from the forelimbs to the tail, allowing them to glide from one tree to another. Their head is small, with large eyes, small ears, and blunt snouts.
They are strictly arboreal and skillful climbers but quite helpless on the ground. They can glide more than 100m (330 ft) with an elevation loss of less than 10 m (32 ft). This animal is an herbivore that primarily eats flowers, nectar, fruits, buds, young leaves, and sap.
