- An old family of wizards living near the dunes of the Sandara Desert heard rumors of a completely new type of dragon. Wallach, the head of the family, took a group out to search the dunes. Wallach's son Leto, a wizard-in-training, spotted the spindles of the sand dragon's back poking out from a nearby dune. Oddly enough, the spindles are softer than they appear.
- —Nogard's description of the sand dragon in The Book of Dragons
Sand dragons use their claws and fangs rather than their soft spikes and spindles.
Sand dragons have a light brown skin that's very useful for camouflage. A second transparant eyelid protects their eyes from the sand. A sand dragon rather avoids battles because they only have decent offensive power.
Sand dragons live in various deserts, but the largest population is in the Sandara Desert.
Sand dragons sunbathe while hiding in the sand. Their large spikes contain very small holes where they store sand. Under the energy of the sun, the spikes drain the minerals out of the sand.
Behavior and Personality
- "I don't like sand dragons. They're coarse and rough and irritating, and they shed everywhere."
