The Antipodean Opaleye is a breed of Dragon native to New Zealand, although it is known to migrate to Australia in search of territory.[1]

Description and traitsEdit

It resides in valleys, which is unusual as dragons typically reside on mountains. It is generally considered one of the most beautiful dragons, with pearly scales that line its body, and glittering multi-coloured eyes that have no pupils. The Opaleye's eggs are pale grey and have been known to be mistaken by Muggles for fossils and its flame was vivid red.[1]

The Opaleye is not particularly aggressive, rarely killing unless it is hungry. Its prey of choice was sheep, but it has been known to attack larger animals. In the 1970s, several kangaroo killings were thought to have been caused by a male Opaleye that had been ousted from its territory by a dominant female.[1]
