- Mud dragons love to eat. Second only to eating, mud dragons love to play around in muck. They are so often covered in mud that you rarely ever see their natural skin color. Of course, you wouldn't be able to tell if you were seeing their natural skin color or not, since it looks an awful lot like mud.
- —Nogard's description of the mud dragon in The Book of Dragons
The mud dragon often looks like a giant mound of mud. It is rare that anyone sees this creature moving about on land. Their leathery, mud-colored skin hangs from them in folds.
Mud dragons have tusks for battling rivals.
Mud dragons have thick skin, and few predators would attack such a massive creature. But its main ability is camouflage. Mud dragons are almost always seen half submerged in mud pits, covered in mud. It can be hard to distinguish them from the surrounding rocks. When threatened, they disappear beneath the mud.
Mud dragons are immune to almost all kinds of poison.
Mud dragons are slow-moving and older ones can barely move at all on land.
Mud dragons eat anything they can snatch with their sticky tongues--worms, frogs, dragonflies, snakes, and beetles, to name a small portion of their diet. They have remarkably fast reflexes to catch these creatures.
