The paradise tree snake of Southeast Asia can flatten itself like a ribbon and glide in the air from tree to tree, changing direction by leaning left or right!

"Bendable Concrete" The Mihara Bridge in Hokkaido, Japan has a deck only 2 inches thick, yet is 500 times more resistant to cracking than traditional concrete!
