- Often seen stomping around with moss dragons, the forest dragon is a particularly social creature. Similar to the evergreen dragon, you'll often see forest dragons frolicking in groups.
- —The Great Nogard's description of the Forest Dragon in The Book of Dragons
Forest dragons can charge at enemies with their rootlike horns, or pounce on them and attack them with their sharp teeth. but as far as dragon weapons go, they are not good fighters and would rather flee than attack.
Forest dragons are incredibly fast and agile. They walk as quietly as a panther and blend in with the shadows of the forest. When they hear an unfamiliar sound, they crouch and become motionless, so they are more difficult to spot. They rely mainly on safety in numbers.
Forest dragons have a very sensitive sense of smell. They can swim if necessary.
Forest dragons are not good fighters. If one is spotted and separated from the herd, it is unlikely to be able to fight the predator off.
Forest dragon herds typically spend their time roaming about. They are found anywhere there is foliage and prefer moderate climates.
Behavior and Personality
Forest dragons live in large herds. Most herds have about 60 members, though some are reported to have more than 150. There is no official leader of the herd, though oftentimes a few members of the herd tend to be in charge in where the herd goes. If they move, the rest of the herd moves too.

How to care for
The story of the forest dragon's discovery is an odd one. Long ago, a young apprentice was sent into the woods by his scouting party to check for signs of dragons. It was dark and the apprentice couldn't see much. Suddenly, shapes he had thought were dead trees moved around him. They were dragons! Terrified, he screamed and ran back. It was some time before he could gain enough breath to explain himself, and when asked if he had met a dragon he gasped, "It's a whole forest of dragons!" The name stuck.
Origin of Name
The forest dragon's name was coined when it was discovered, and the name stuck, as detailed above.
