Harry Potter Dragons
Ten types of dragons can be identified in the universe of Harry Potter. Some are easy going, others are savages. But all of them have fabulous aspects and special abilities.
Antipodean Opaleye is considered the most beautiful species of dragon. It is born in New Zealand but usually immigrates to Australia when the geographic and climatic conditions harm their survival. It has medium size, weight between two and three tons; its eyes are of multiple colors. Regarding his feeding habits, it never kills human beings. Its favorite food is the ewe. Their  eggs are of a pale gray.

Chinese Fireball, also known like Liondragon, is the only Eastern dragon. With scarlet color and smooth grudges, it has golden points around its face and protuberances around the eyes. It weights between two and four tons. Their eggs are golden, and their rinds are considered for the use of Chinese wizards. Chinese Fireball is a wild species, although tolerant to other creatures and persons.

The Welsh Green Dragon is almost an exclusive dragon found in Wales. It is a dragon that avoids the proximity of human beings. It has a melodic roar and breathes fire, and their eggs are brown with green specks.

The Hungarian Horntail is most dangerous of all the dragons. Its body is covered by black grudges and its aspect is similar to the one of a lizard. Their eyes are yellow and have bronze horns. Its fire breath can reach 5 feet. This dragon feeds on great mammals; it likes to devour goats. In Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry has to vanquish a Hungarian Horntail dragon in order to succeed in the Triwizard Match.

The best exponent of the Norwegian Ridgeback dragon is Norbert, a dragon acquired by Hagrid when it was still an egg. The Ministry of Magic classifies dragon eggs as noncommercial merchandise. Norbert begins to grow vertiginously, and becomes very dangerous. Harry, Ron and Hermione persuade Hagrid to hand Norbert to Charlie, the older brother of Ron, that is studying dragons in Rumania. It is possible to emphasize that Rubeus Hagrid, the creature caretaker of Hogwarts, loves animals and magical creatures, particularly the rare or endangered ones. Most of Nobert’s story was told in Harry Potter and the Philoshopher’s Stone.

Harry Potter DragonThe Norwegian Ridgeback was the first species found by Harry during his first year in Hogwarts. In the book “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, Potter investigates the characteristics of this species, that includes the particularity of breathing fire at the premature age of 1 to 3 months.

Rhodesian Ridgeback is a compound animal: looks like a dog combined with a rare species of dragon. Their eggs are black.
On the other hand, the Peruvian Vipertooth is a small and fast dragon. It has short horns and poisonous eyeteeth. It is able to eat from small spiders to human beings.

The Romanian Longhorn is a Rumanian dragon that has great dark green grudges and gold horns. This species is at the brink of extinction; it eats goats, cattle and ewes.

The Swedish Short-snout is a voluptuous blue dragon. The flames that its nose emits are of a shining blue color; they are able to flame any object in a matter of seconds. It is an animal that prefers to live in uninhabited mountainous areas. In the book Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Cedric Diggory had to defeat one of these dragons in order to conclude the first task of the Triwizard Match.

The Ukrainian Ironbelly is greatest of all the dragons; although it is slow, but considered the most dangerous. One of the threats of this dragon is its habit of landing on houses and squashing them (the Ironbelly weights up to six tons). Its skin is of metallic gray color, it has red eyes and their claws are long.
Finally, the Hebridean Black is a dangerous British dragon that has black skin. It is wild and usually eats human beings. A Quidditch team made once the attempt to capture one and use it as a mascot, but it was impossible to control it.

The Norwegian Ridgeback also resembles the Hungarian Horntail a bit in looks, but it is quite a bit smaller and has brown instead of black scales. I think it also feeds on sea animals such as seals. (It is also less hostile than the Horntail.)
