▼ The Andrew Mason Illustrated Field Guide to Unknown Dragons of North America...
Once the haven to giant fire-breathing dragons, there are few known modern North American dragon species. Many have become extinct due to topographical changes and ever-shrinking dragon-friendly territories. They are very difficult to locate, most having become smaller and more camouflaged over the past few centuries. Species that have survived are mostly vegetarian, some omnivorous; no carnivorous species has been identified. North America does contain the largest population of burrowing and semi-subterranean dragons.

One of the very few dragon species that has benefited by human civilization encroachment, the Western Common Flatdragon is often mistaken for a large lizard and is the most common dragon in suburban North America. Flatdragons live a symbiotic relationship with Man, providing pest control while gaining a safe lair. Are you missing any food in your house? You may want to check your pantry for a hole. Flatdragons are very clever and often share your diet with you.
