When in a park
This dragon tends to resides in warm areas, including the base of volcanoes, bright deserts, and heated caverns. It will particularly enjoy a quick and warm lava bath near a lava lake.

If you do touch them without protection, you will likely sustain moderate burns and should seek medical attention quickly.
This dragon has several glowing fins which give off heat. Be careful when you touch these, even with protection, as they can be very hot. Despite this, they need constant cleaning, because if too much debris is gathered on the fins, they will cool and the dragon will become slow and sluggish. Use a fine dry towel for cleaning, and do not use a wet one as it will cause much steam and heat.
This dragon should avoid external contact with water at all times. If it touches water, ashes and steam will fly out, and eventually the flames will be snuffed out.

Even better, go to a professional who is prepared to deal with this kind of situation.
