- The witch Fatima Fata discovered the mirage dragon when she noticed its big eyes poking out of the sand in the Sandara Desert. Thinking it was a stranded water dragon, she dug it out, only to realize it was the rare offspring of light and dark, waiting out the heat of the day.
- —Nogard's description of the mirage dragon in The Book of Dragons
The mirage dragon looks a lot like their dark counterpart the dark dragon. They have a sandy yellow skin, their wing membranes are transparent blue, their claws are shorter and blue as well as their teeth and finally they have fully developed eyes.
Their claws and teeth are short but can be fatal.
They dig themselves under the sand and cover themselves pretty quickly so it can lose predators.
Behavior and personality
Relationship to Wizards
While hiding from things, mirage dragons automatically hide from wizards too. However, when dug out, they become fiercely agressive, which Fatima Fata discovered the hard way. DDLA has ranked them as safety level 3.
When in a Park
How to care for
Mirage Dragons require special care for being an opposite hybrid. It must be exposed to enough light and darkness a day, and not too much. If placed in a Light habitat and the dragon is not visible, instead of reporting the dragon has fled it you first have to search if its big eyes are poking out of the sand somewhere, as the dragon likes to bury itself.
The Mirage Dragon does not prefer any treat, though it hates Omega Squashes.
