Dragon Genetics - We will be hatching dragon eggs over the next two weeks. You will be learning about Mendelian genetics. Using a key you will determine your "baby dragon's" genotype and phenotype.
Possible dragon features:  long/short neck, red/white eye, horn-present/absent, fire breathing/not fire breathing, green body/gray body, long tail/short tail, spikes on end of tail/no spikes, red wings/yellow wings, three toes/four toes, yellow belly/white belly, black tail spikes/red tail spikes, freckles/no freckles,
X = X chromosome/no ear frills (XX = female)
Y = Y chromosome/ear frill present (XY = male)
So many possibilities....What kind of dragon will you hatch?

The Norwegian Ridgeback is a rare dragon breed from Norway. It resembles the Hungarian Horntail but instead of tail spikes Norwegian Ridgebacks have black ridges on its back and the browner texture in its scales. Ridgebacks have very venomous fangs, and as an adult can grow up to 35 feet long. Ridgeback eggs are black and when the dragons hatch they resemble ‘a crumpled black umbrella.’ The Norwegian Ridgeback is an amazing dragon!
