Fargesia Dragon, Kew Gardens

This fantastic blue dragon is a Fargesia dragon. It lives on the Great Pagoda at Kew and was first spotted and sketched by a girl called Florence (aged 11) who also watches Blue Peter.

This species has especially noteworthy teeth and an almost leaf-like plumage. Not many have been spotted in the wild. This one appears to be the ‘blue sheep’ among 79 green Asiatic wyvern dragons, all nesting together on the Great Pagoda at Kew Gardens.

For a bonus you can see a huge wealth of dragon sightings, all drawn by kids and sent in to Blue Peter on the BBC website. It’s really encouraging to see young people getting so involved in dragon-twitching, so we recommend you go take a look.
