Introducing the Drago

     Hi, there!  I am back, talking about The Caver's Kiss again.  Today, I thought I would introduce you to the creatures who play a great role in my story: Dragos.  In fact, without the Drago, a certain event that was the catalyst for my tale would never have happened.

     Dragos are quite large, ranging from 20 to 30 feet in length.  They live in caves and hunt in low light or dark conditions.  Dragos are fierce, deadly creatures that will hunt anything that moves, although they especially love the taste of the carbat (a small flying mammal that glows via bioluminescence).  They are quick of temper, easily irritated, and they hold grudges.
     While Dragos are fictional creatures, they are based on a real life creature: the frilled lizard...only much, much bigger and meaner.
     Below are several photos of the frilled lizard.  Imagine them in a cave setting, and imagine them to be about as long as your house is wide.  That should give you a pretty good idea of the Dragos of Wheston caves.
