Dark green dragons, once they mature, appear to become an entirely different species. However, this isn’t true. Rather, they burrow underground and get nutrients from their vines. These vines are sometimes referred to as Dragon Grass. These dragons are very violent, and will use their vines to capture, kill, and eat anything that moves, as well as nearby plants. Luckily, their range is limited and they cannot use magic. Dark green dragons tend to be easy to spot since they usually kill all plants around them and thus are usually surrounded by a large clearing.
Ficus Aurea is an active Dark Green Dragon, with no interest whatsoever in the raising of plants. His sole purpose in life, as far as he can decide, is to eat things that get trapped in his vines, and to remain a perfect physical specimen of a dragon. This has of course captured the attention of Saccharine, who continues to watch him adoringly from afar, awaiting her chance to capture his attention.
