" Many Chinese Lung Dragons have a long history with humans, longer than any other dragon. They taught the very first Dragonologist how to write, read, and be civilized. It is unknown if modern dragons regret such generosity"

|Draco Species Profile|
The Chinese Lung (Draco orientalis magnus.) has been in contact with humans for longer than any other Asian species.
Colouration is iridescent black or blue and a yellow or white mane in the older lung. Fish and birds make up its primary diet and they dwell away from large human populations, though they ssdd live near villages and monasteries. The lair is underwater, with their treasure hoard of jade, opals and pearls along with their egg. It is the heaviest dragon egg, round and pearlescent white turning blue with silver swirls in water. Like Korean Yong and Japanese Ryu, the infants are aquatic. Their longevity is unknown. The mane thins with age but none are bald. The famous Lung Wei lived for 730 years before he was cruelly killed by Alexandra Gorynytchka, though some Lung have lived to over one thousand years. Although they can not fly, they can leap over 100 feet. Be very polite when talking to Lung and they may even eat out of your hand.
