The frost dragon is a polar dragon, also known by the name of Draco occidentalis maritimus. It is a migrating species that moves from pole to pole. Its appearance is similar to the European Dragon, which is another subspecies from the same genus. Exceedingly rare, adult frost dragons are unlikely to be encountered at close quarters in the wild, given that their polar habitat is extremely inhospitable to humans and their numbers are dwindling. Look for them instead; flying en masse overhead during their annual migration in Spring and early Autumn. Some subspecies develop a mane of fur like feathers on the neck and chest.
