Safari Ltd Krystal Blue Dragon
The sleek, lithe Krystal Blue Dragon descends from an ancient Chinese lineage, a wingless family with serpent-like bodies and narrow snouts. While some dragons certainly are sinister, most Eastern dragons, including the Krystal Blue, bring good fortune.

Size and Color: Brilliant contrasting blues and yellows are offset by more demur grey and brown, and a splash of red about the face of this Krystal Blue Dragon gives it an incredible palate. It measures 8 inches from nose to tail and stands 3 inches high.
The Krystal Blue Dragon is part of the Dragons collection. All of Safari products are Non-toxic and BPA free.
History: The family of Horned Chinese Dragons separated from the Forest Dragons and Dark dragons millions of years ago, and like much in evolutionary history, geography took care of the rest. However, the unique color of the Krystal Blue species suggests some crossover with Ice or Cloud Dragons in the distant past.
Although body shape, wings, and demeanor are dominant genetic traits, less is known about colour, as most dragons have adapted to match their surroundings. Dragonologists have theorized that colours more necessary for survival might be dominant traits, which could explain how the colors associated with Ice Dragons could appear in a temperate dragon. When the two species mixed is less of an issue. With several ice ages in the past 40 million years, there were many opportunities for northern dragons to mingle with their temperate cousins.
