The Dragon in Nina Beana and the Owenroake Treasure Hunters is a dragon with an attitude, and one should definitely not attempt to feed, pet, or communicate with said Dragon!! Your standard elephant weighs 12,000 pounds or 6 tons. Now times that by 5 or 6 and you begin to see the size of the dragon in Nina Beana and the Owenroake Treasure Hunters who attempted to crispy-fry Benter and Jake - approximately 36 tons or 6 fully grown, hefty elephants. It's estimated that a fire-breathing dragon of this size could melt iron with a good, lengthy exhale of fire and the flames may have extended up to 500 feet. The dragon chasing Benter and Jake was a red dragon with some blue/black markings.
Red dragons are greedy and covetous, and obsessed with many things including treasure. They live in warm habitats, such as volcanoes or tropical islands - like Marrisa's Lake. The red dragon's domain is the mountain and the island. They are cunning and terrible.
A red dragon can be identified by is long wings and two long horns. It has a long, red, forked tongue. Tiny flames often dance in and from the nostrils. The dark aqua eyes with black slits gleam with unrestrained greed when viewing treasure. The red dragon smells of smoke and sulfur.
Red dragons are fiercely territorial. They prefer to eat meat, especially people. The best part of a meal for a red dragon is drinking the blood of it's victim. Red dragons are difficult to kill due to several magical abilities which we will discover in Nina Beana and the Magic Goblet of Gyantor.
Stay tuned....our next blog will cover Ghouls - you don't want to feed them either.
