The Jungle Dragon shows how dragon species can adapt to their surroundings. Its scales resemble leaves and its powerful legs look like tree trunks, while its long horns appear like scraggly branches. The creature is perfectly camouflaged for its home.
Scientific Name: Draco truncatis
Characteristics: In a stately, upright position, this wingless Jungle Dragon might be mistaken for a tropical tree at first glance. Don’t let the mesmerizing eyes fool you though. Those teeth are sharp!
Size and Color: A leaf-like mix of light and dark green creates the scaly body of the Jungle Dragon, while greyish brown accents appear on the underbelly, legs, and horns. Standing 5 inches tall, it’s a little taller than a soda can.
