The fenhuang(Phoenix asiatica.) is a Chinese bird which is sometimes mistakenly regarded as a Phoenix. However, it prefers a bath of water for cleansing.
They are about 3 feet high. It is lucky, the "king of birds" and a symbol of peace. They have a friendship with the Chinese Lung dragons and often dwell near them on inaccessible islands. They despise snakes, which pose a danger to their young. It is not known what benefit the Lung gains, although they may line their nests with fenghuang feathers.
