I have plans for this passage. It is destined to become something much bigger than its current 71 words.
While I was copying the original version, I remembered the inspiration for the writing. The dragon in question is not, as can be inferred, a fantastical species. It was a baby hatched in the pet shop I was working in at the time. A Bearded Dragon, native to Australia. The hatchlings had been kept together until I came in to find this little one's injury one morning. It ended up going to a good home with another employee.

|Because of their animated personalities|
I call them "living cartoons."
