- The miasma dragon gets its... unique... scent from the ability to absorb undesirable aromas from around its environment. The rest of the park, as a result, has never smelled better! Despite the noxious fumes surrounding it, visitors still manage to enjoy the dragon, albeit from a comfortable distance.
- —Nogard's description of the miasma dragon in The Book of Dragons
The miasma dragon may already stink a lot, but when provoked, it can release an even stinkier gas from its tail. No wizard or witch could stay in the gas long enough to study it, but it likely contains hydrogen sulfide and burning bromine. The gas doesn't seem to be toxic, but a wizard stood for about a minute in it and returned with burn wounds, making it likely that there actually is fire in the gas.
Its scent is enough protection.
Miasma dragons are able to absorb bad smells from the air around them, but as a result it makes them quite smelly. Nevertheless, wizards have found this ability quite useful. Sometimes, miasma dragons get led around a building to clear it of undesirable scents... and then moved to a habitat far away from the building to be cleaned off.
This miasma dragon stink defense doesn't work when sprayed with large amounts of water or underwater.
Miasma dragons are attracted to polluted air, which helps with their digestion process.
