Umbragrus by Hyrotrioskjan Umbragrus by Hyrotrioskjan
Umbragrus is the only member of the Confuciosauridae in europe. During the ice ages the southern habitats of the continent were dominated by them, but when the temperatures rise, the Aquilapoda (like Eurovenator) come back from africa and diaplace them.
Umbragrus (means Shadow crane) live like most of it's family near the water and in this case near the coast. they eat fish, birds, eggs but also carcass. The best time to watch them is in the evening when they leaving their nest. Because of the webbed at the feet and the lightly build body hey are able to swimm on the water. At the neck are glands for a oily secretion. With which they rub semselves to stay dry.

Your dragons are so cool! I love them, watching you was one of the best things I've done, haha. :D
I wonder what separates the different families of dragons from eachother? What makes a dragon belong to Confuciosauridae? Is it differences in the skeleton? :eager:

Oh yes their are some differences, for example the pelvis bones which are very long in this group, but also the long neck vertebrae or the compact Femur.

I think I just came up with a common name for this guy. I'll call it the knucker.

Knuckers are often described in folklore as being squat and aquatic.It also said to live in large burrows,or knuckerholes.Umbragrus does not fit that description.

What was their relationship with humans like? Were they hunted like the other European dragons, or did they live peacefully with humans like the confuciosaurus?
