Dragons are giant winged, fire-breathing reptiles. Widely regarded as horrifying but awe-inspiring, they can be found all over the world and are frequently referred to in Asian and medieval European folklore. Able to fly and breathe fire through their nostrils, they are one of the most dangerous and hardest to conceal creatures in the wizarding world. Despite how dangerous they are, there are people who are trained to work with them, called dragon keepers, or dragonologists. Members of the Committee for the Disposal of Dangerous Creatures who kill Dragons are called Dragon Killers. A wizard who illegally trades and sells dragons is referred to as a dragon dealer.
