DRAGONS

Swift Turnaround

Plains dragons, like desert dragons are medium-sized soaring dragons, active primarily at dawn and dusk. Plains dragons ride thermals coming off the high red rock cliffs, hovering above the valleys, with their light-coloured belly scales and thin membranous wings helping to camouflage the creatures against the sky. Slow-growing and slow-metabolizing, a single large animal kill can leave a plains dragon well-fed and comfortable (though often too heavy to fly) for weeks.

Prairie, badlands, and foothills

Medium sized mammals (larger animals such as cattle, horses, or elk, can also be taken and eaten)
