The Golden Dragon is a rare Horned Chinese Dragon with wings. The wings are an adaptation for highland living, unique to Golden Dragons, a sub-species of Chinese Dragon. Golden Dragons live in the mountains of eastern and central Asia, where their wings enable them to travel easily. The most compelling characteristic of the Golden Dragon is its colour, of course, but the brilliant sparkle hides fine details, such as closely knit scales, large horns, and a fabulous crest. Brilliant gold covers the body of this 6 ¾ inch Golden Dragon figure, with a more muted gold coating its wings, horns, and adornments. Red eyes provide a splash of contrast. As the horned dragons spread throughout eastern Asia, they began to adapt to their surroundings. Some forest dwellers developed brighter colours, not needing to camouflage themselves against predators. Coastal dwellers developed long tails so they could move through water more easily. Mountain dwellers, like the Golden Dragon, adapted with more compact bodies that required less food, and they developed wings for easier travel. All these adaptations helped them survive and thrive in the harsher mountain environment.
