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.
Small and thin for his size and age, Alosaka prefers to spend his days in quiet meditation, free of distraction, contemplating such questions as the purpose of everything and the best way to self-fulfillment. So still is he normally that it is difficult to recognize him as dragon grass. However, because he often ignores hunger while meditating, it is important not to catch him offguard or by surprise as body forces him to eat when he stops ignoring it. Indeed, when the dragons of Ferwe Weyr want to talk to him, they typically bring along a treat so that Alosaka isn't distracted by hunger.
