      1. Awesome! Now all we need to figure out is what to name them . I like Sparky but I could go with Fire-kiss or maybe Beaufort because let’s be honest no one else would name their dragon that. So what would you call your dragon? We might get lucky and stumble on a nest of them so you should have a good dragon name ready. ☺
