Peacock Dragons are rarely seen, despite their brilliant plumage. A cryptozoologist will be lucky if they see this species - Draco resplendens during their lifetime. Not because these beautiful creatures are particularly rare, but because of the dense equitorial rainforests in which they live. They habitat the dense undergrowth and midstory strata of the forest, rarely, if ever, ascending to the tops of the trees. Many cite the beast's habit of destroying bulldozers as evidence of intelligence. These attacks appear to be closely coordinated, with a loosely affiliated group of dragons operating together, apparently coming together to deal with the threat.
Hunters that target Peacock Dragons rarely last long. However, cryptozoologists and other naturalists who make no attempt to capture or harm the dragons have often been able to approach quite closely, and several people have reported that when observing a resplendens through binoculars, to have been very surprised to have turned around and found themselves face to face with a curious dragon!
