And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing."
Adult[edit | edit source]
"Olive dragons are a small, forest dwelling breed, rarely growing much larger than the average sheep. When alarmed, they can erect a long row of venomous spines on their back, serving to warn any potential predators that Olives are not a good choice for a meal. While not strong enough to kill anything larger than a small deer, their venom causes an extremely painful reaction and necrosis at the site of the wound, sometimes causing the flesh to rot and limbs to fall off."
