Smokey will help you thoughout this page. But I
must warn you! He loves coffee (soda too), and may try to steal your cup
if you let him too close. He will not bite or even try to harm you in any
way. But please don't feed him! To much caffeine and he will never rest!
Thank you for understanding.
We will briefly go over two types of dragons:
Chinese and Western.
Imagine four legs a long sinuous body with a snake
tail. The horns of a stag head like a camel. Eyes that glow red much like
a rabbit or a beast. Its neck is of a snake, belly of a clam and scales
like a fish. The claws like an eagle, paws are similar to a tigers. And
the ears like a bull. With a peril in their throat which symbolizes wisdom.
They can be black, red, white, or yellow. Yellow is considered superior.
Have straight noses, round manes, thin tales and
a strong tale.
The eggs are laid next to a river bank and buried
deep not to be disturbed by anyone or thing. In 1,000 years the eggs will
hatch. In 500 years the baby dragon will be known as a Kias (a scaled dragons)
In 1000 more years it will be known as Lung (Proper Dragon) 500 more years
known as a Kioh-Lung (horned) in 1000 more years it will be know as a Ying-Lung
