The Snowtailed Dragonkin, or just the Snowtail for short, is a relative to the Norwegian Ridgeback. Like its cousin, it appears mostly in Scandinavia and Northwest Russia. Their name comes from their white scales and distinctive fuzzy ball on the end of their tails. Snowtails are believed to be omnivores, with a preference for prey over vegetation.

Snowtails are about 15 feet head to hind, with close to 20 if you count the tail. When standing on all fours, the back stands at 8 feet. Wing stubs protrude sideways from the vertebrae. Female stubs are bigger than male ones (which is the main way of telling them apart) but neither can fly with them.

They live in groups of 10-20 individuals, which are curiously called "flocks". This is a left-over from the misconception that Snowtails have fully developed wings and can fly. Early thaumobiologists couldn't stick around long enough to get a good picture of them, because Snowtails are notoriously territorial.

Flocks show a fascinating specialisation within them. Some individuals have the sole task of building and maintaining the nests while the flock resides in an area, others - mostly females - defend the nests from other predators.
