- The swamp dragon is the master of its domain, though not at all territorial. A truly strange breed, but one that teaches you something new every time you study it.
- —Nogard's description of the swamp dragon in The Book of Dragons
Swamp dragons are docile creatures that only attack if provoked. Their bite is very poisonous and though it's not deadly it can leave a permanent scar.
The swamp dragon, like the water dragon, has gills, and can become virtually invisible while buried in the muck at the bottom of a pond.
Swamp dragons are good swimmers. Their wide, webbed toes enable them to walk on soft mud. Like the plant dragon, the tendrils on their tail can be used to grab things. Their eyes sit on the top of their heads, so they can see above the water while submerged and dive under if predators approach.
The swamp dragon is able to swallow large amounts of water, which it can use to quench its thirst in times of drought, or used as a weapon against enemies.
Swamp dragons are small compared to most other dragons and very poor fliers.
Swamp dragons prefer muddy, murky, slimy water that will conceal them. They are most frequently found in shallow wetlands and ponds.
Swamp dragons are bottom feeders, but also eat water plants. They eat duckweed, algae, aquatic plants, snails, worms, detritus and occasionally fish. Some say the swamp dragons living on Blast Furnace are fierce predators hunting for the other dragons living there. That would explain the large population of swamp dragons there compared to the other dragons, and how they survive.
