We've found an unpicky dragon one scientist says to another, how the other one says, it eats anything it can catch!

question, what are it's natural predators beside Jaguars, eagles and snakes?

Personally, I think Datoupterus is smaller. Nice job, though
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
Yes Datoupterus is smaller, I never change this error in the description.

I have a hypothesis, The reason R.darwini severus is completely safe and inaccessible from native people is because it lives it's entire life up in the very highest part of the trees, and the only way scientists can examine this animals is by taking a safety harness up the tree.

I also thought about that, but all literature speaks about animals which live in the middle or the ground levels of the rainbforest, young specimens sometimes rest in the canopy but as Serpentipoda they are not build for longer climbing tours.
gdog00's avatar
so the canopy and not the emergments.

If their habitat is inaccessible, then i guess humans can't lay a finger on them, therefore their completely safe.
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
Yes, safe enough, at least until now.
gdog00's avatar
whats been threatening them?
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
The intesive use of the mangrove forests for shrimp farming threatening a part of the population.
gdog00's avatar
has it become threaten or vulnerable?
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
It's a question of what population are we talking about, the coastal subspecies R. darwini altus is vulnerable but the inland subspecies R. darwini severus is least concern.
gdog00's avatar
all I really want to know which dragons are near threatened or vulnerable.

Awesome design on this! :wow:
It seems like rubercocursor is one of the few dragon species that isn't threatened by extinction and actually thrives in our time. Is this because of it's small size and inaccessible habitat?
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
Yes, their hibitat is really inaccessible for humans

Haha, it looks like he's /she's screaming because his/her legs have got sunburn. On another note, aww its so cute!!
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
Haha, yes, you are right, never notice that before =D

All of these dragons, plus the ones I know of, clearly show that there are more species of dragon than we can count.
Hyrotrioskjan's avatar
Oh, we can count them, there are fewer and fewer. But you are right.
There are more as we the most expect.
