Biologists would have you call this thing an Armadillo-Girdled Lizard, Cordylus cataphractus, but I won’t be fooled. This is clearly a baby dragon. They also have this adorable habit of biting their own tails for no discernible reason. Which is adorable until you remember what the ouroboros is, and inevitably conclude that these things are also dark magic.
Magical dragons. It all makes sense.
Are their undersides smooth? If so then I’m guessing biting the tail is a defensive measure to protect the one area that isn’t covered in armor. Still adorable though, and a great explanation for where the ouroborus comes from. :)
The house has remained atop the rock since 1968.
All of this is completely true!
