Cryopterus by Hyrotrioskjan Cryopterus by Hyrotrioskjan
The Cryodraconidae are a very rare group of northern dragons. They have special hollow, elongated scales that cover most of the body. But to survive, the hard winter they must travel in to the south were the temperature are a bit higher. Dragons are warm-blooded creatures but the big wings are escape the heat of the body, so a flying Cryopterus in the winter is a rare sight.
Maybe this inactivity is a reason for the nearly extinction of dragons in europe.
The population in denmark is the smalest because of the high number of dragonslayer in the middleages.
This species only all 2 years lay an egg. The males fight with their tales (you can see the grains). The winner often get more than one female and build with every nest. After the winter the babys hatch.

Great one too!!! Maybe the dragon Fafnir from norse mythology is one of them?
I just imagined them more heavy bodied... you know, animals from cold regions tend to be larger.

There are a bigger species in the past, but Fafnir and his brothers were hunted during the middleages and extinct. A few went to the north pole but there were not enough prey for them. In the russian tundra we have also a species that is a bit bigger (not very well known at the moment)

Pterosaurs had pycnofibirls covering the wings; maybe these dragons could have covered wings as well?
