Swamp or Forest Dragon


The Swamp or Forest Dragon hunts in marshy or wooded areas throughout the tropical and temperate zones or Arth. They are clumsy fliers, and usually do not hunt on the wing as their larger kin. Their wings are small, and more strongly built than the larger dragons, so that they can run upon them almost as well as if they were forelegs, with the wing mebranes tucked up and behind them. Swamp or forest dragons prefer to fly to a vantage point and then glide or drop down upon their prey. Alternatively, they lurk in the water, springing upon their prey as it approaches to drink. In addition to their fearsome teeth and claws, the swamp dragon can expel gas onto its victims, but mixed with its caustic digestive juices, forming a blinding, incapacitating spray.
