The Dragonology children’s book series introduces many different kinds of dragons, drawing from obscure corners of dragon legends, or from the slightly less-successful route of dragonizing real animals (watch out for kangaroo dragons, bee dragons, and dodo bird dragons).
However, my favourite one is the American Amphithere, or “moth dragon”. It’s a cousin to the feathered serpent dragons down south, but with membranous wings, a more fur-like coat, and birdlike behaviour. It’s implied to be the source of Mothman legends, and its eggs glow in hte dark.
