The Big Book of Dragons

This is the Big Book of Dragons! The very book you need if you want to know all the dragons to know of! Madouc and Secrets try to write about as many dragons as they possibly can, giving their names, their habits and behaviour, their environment; etcetera. All the dragons maybe from games, films, books or other forms of media, but these dragons certainly exist! But perhaps if you have made and drawn your own dragon, then tell us about it and it shall become part of our guide!


10. 9 - The Hungarian Horntail

The Hungarian Horntail
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (book/film)

The beast stands about 3m in height, and 12m in length; rather large for such wyverns. Wingspan is roughly 11m, so slightly smaller than its actual length.

The monstrosity is considered an evil being. A dragon expert once said: "Dragons are seriously misunderstood creatures. Although, I have to admit, that Horntail is a right nasty piece of work." This dragon has a fowl temper, killing anything it sees. And once it has its eyes on a target, it will not stop trying to kill it. An example of this is during the 1994 Triwizard Tournament, when the creature nearly tore down half of Hogwart's roof tops trying to kill a wizard. It is a determined dragon, to say the least.

As is common with most dragons, the Hungarian Horntail can breath a wash of fire at who it chooses. The fires can reach extremely far, and are also at massively high temperatures, making rocks turn to an orangey glow. Lastly, it can fly very skilfully and quickly. 

How to kill:
Being that the beast has scales as hard as stone, and horns that pepper its back, this beast isn't likely to fall at the hands of a blade or bow. Unless you find an opportunity to strike its underbelly, then you can; however, this is suicidal. One was killed in the Triwizard Tournament in 1994 when it crashed into a bridge and fell its untimely demise. So a hard impact can kill it.
You might have to get creative in how you kill this dragon.

We all know this dragon, but do you have the guts to take it down?
If so, god speed to you.
