Flamingo Wyverns are so named for their resemblance to the tropical birds with whom they often share territory. Their most striking feature is the bony black crest over their faces and snouts, smaller in females, aiding both in digging up food and protection from attack. Females are noticeably brighter than males due to their habit of not straying far from particularly algae-rich feeding grounds.
This dragon has earned a reputation for being fearsome, but in truth she should have earned a reputation as being a highly capable mother. On more than one occasion when an aggressive dragon has strayed too close to her young, she has thrown herself into vicious action, using her whole lithe body as a noose and constricting the lengthy serpentine throats of those who would devour her offspring. While these attacks rarely result in the death of her larger opponents, they do provide sufficient scare to make them leave, with the mother than shepherding her hatchlings to a new and safer location.
