The two-legged and wingless Lindworm (Draco serpentalis) is primarily seen from a great distance away, hunting wild Bactrian camels at speeds of 30 miles per hour. It probably gave rise to tales of the Mongolian Death Worm.
They are 8 to 10 feet high and continually grow in length by a few inches a year, the oldest males being 35 feet long. Colouration is orange, sandy yellow or pale green, varying to match the lindworm's terrain. Older males have yellow spines on their backs and wattles on the nose and chin. They have the best sense of smell of all dragons, making studying it unnoticed near-impossible. Clutches of up to twenty of their long pale eggs are buried although few hatch. Those which do ride on their mother's backs and only get off to feed.
