Little Chinese dragon

A dragon is often a combination of different animals, and such is this one, made from feline, reptilian, and annelid qualities. It's a small dragon, no bigger than a medium-sized dog, and is at its best when scampering over mountain crags. Large dragons can use these little ones for protection while manifesting their greatness at the parliament of animals. They also are good at picking up scraps of food or paper, a task which excites them, as this one shows. They're not very friendly to humans but will not attack unless provoked.
