- Pollen dragons may be adorable, but rest assured these dragons can be quite the nuisance. They release a fine powder-like substance that is known to attract other dragons. Unfortunately, many people report being allergic to it. Guests that experience any symptoms should report directly to the Wizard Clinic. We've been assured that side effects of treatment only include being turned into the occasional frog.
- —Nogard's description of the pollen dragon in The Book of Dragons
Pollen dragons can release a small powder, which is very harmful to certain dragons with hay fever and about any wizard.
The pollen offers protection too. If that isn't enough, it will rather flee.
Like all dragons that are part of the Air element, pollen dragons can fly effortlessly without breaks.
Pollen dragons are able to pollinate the food they eat, making them successful survivors.
The pollen is its only weapon, however most dragons are attracted by it. If it is attacked by a fast-flying dragon, it will probably not survive.
The pollen dragon prefers places with a lot of grass it can hide in. This is also helpful for pollination as the dragon travels a lot.
Pollen dragons travel so much that they do not build permanent nests. They hide in bushes instead.
Behavior and personality
Pollen dragons may travel with friends, but most live a solitary life.
Relationship to wizards
Pollen dragons are friendly to humans, but about 90% of the human population is allergic to their pollen and thus should stay away from them.
Pollen dragons are herbivores and eat any type of plant. They pollinate the food they eat too.

How to care for
One must strengthen the invisible shields of the habitat to make sure not even the smallest pollen flies out for the safety of your visitors. The dragons themselves do not require much care other than the basic care for plant elementals.
Pollen dragons will eat anything.
If two pollen dragons of the opposite gender meet each other during spring, and get along very well, they will remain mates for the rest of their life. Mates still travel separated after the child turns adolescent but will not wander too far away from each other and will meet each other again from time to time.
The egg is carried by the mother and the pair will travel together until the egg hatches. The male brings food to the female and protects her.
An infant will travel with its parents and is protected by the male and fed by the female. When the infant is tired (most of the time) it is carried either on the female's back or on the male's shoulders.
An adolescent pollen dragon leaves its parents to travel alone. It may never meet its parents again.
An adult is more likely to travel with friends it met during its adolescence and can find a mate during spring.
Males can become 40 years old, females become up to 65 years.
The pollen dragon was known for a long time, but was unable to be described as most people who tried were allergic to it. Luckily, the Plant Dragon Master wasn't allergic and described them and produced a medicine used in the Wizard Clinic for allergic people, however some people are even allergic to the medicine and have the side-effect of being turned temporarily into a frog.
Origin of name
Of course, the pollen dragon is named after its trademark pollen.
