Scarlet Flower by Kalia24 Scarlet Flower by Kalia24
So managed to finish another dragon - Chinese Scarlet Flower. I wanted it to resemble the traditional Chinese dragon as it was described alike. Also found that this one will be interesting having male and female version. I think Flowers should be heavyweight - smaller than Celestials/Imperials, but heavy. Chinese are perfectionist when it comes to dragons so - even with that 'useless' breed - they kept improving the breeding.
Well then, enjoy :)

EDIT: Seems I was almost right about this breed weight - according to BoT where dragons matching description of Scarlet Flowers are said to be about the size of Celestials, but bulkier.

Udało mi się ukończyć kolejnego smoka - chińskiego Scarlet Flower (Szkarłatny Kwiat). Chciałam żeby przypominał tradycyjnego chińskiego smoka, bo tak też był opisany w książkach. Stwierdziłam też, że ten gatunek będzie ciekawszy, jeśli będzie miał wersję męską i żeńską. Wydaje mi się, że Kwiatuszki powinny by ciężkiej wagi - mniejsze od Cesarskich/Niebiańskich, ale jednak ciężkie. Chińczycy pod względem hodowli smoków byli perfekcjonistami, więc - nawet w przypadku tak 'bezużytecznej' rasy - starali się ulepszyć hodowlę.
Miłego oglądania :)

EDIT: Wygląda na to, że miałam prawie rację w kwestii wagi tego gatunku - zdognie z opisem w KT smoki pasujące do opisu Kwiatuszków są wielkości podobnej do Niebiańskich, ale cięższe w budowie.

Oh man I love this. And about people not remembering it being venomous, I think some of the books mention it and some don't? It is very strange, but mine (USA Ballantine Books version) just mentions its "double row of small but wicked teeth" and "a set of four larger curving fangs" and doesn't mention anything about it being venomous.

Huh? Now that's strange... I guess the US version didn't need translation from English to English, so it seems our translators found it funny to change "curving fang" to "venom fangs"... How sweet of them. Seems I'll have to change the pic.

He's not spitting one as far as I know - he's just venomous, like snakes.

No właśnie to jest wspomniane tak zdawkowo i w jednym tylko miejscu na wszystkie książki, że łatwo przegapić.
Miło, że ci się podoba :)

I have translated version so no idea about the page number in your book, but for me it's 284. It's chapter 12 when they wake up in the morning in dragon pavilion.
