Mythical Genetics Mission Statement
We are tamers, breeders, healers and rehabilitators of dragons and related mythical species. We began as dragon breeders using stock from the Bast's Garden/Barringer bloodlines, and all of our creatures have some dragon DNA.Dragon DNA mutates rapidly and is highly variable, so we get new creatures all the time. We also use dragon DNA to mend incomplete DNA strands, so there's a little dragon in all our creatures...it's why they're so colorful!
When people learned about our efforts to restore some of the many endangered dragon species, they began to send us suspected dragon eggs and tissue samples, and we became amateur geneticists. We incubate the eggs we're sent, imprint the babies that hatch on humans, train and housebreak them (no flaming in the house unless they're cooking!) and offer them for adoption to just the right people. They are loyal pals, and they'll guard your favorite stuff. Some dragons even have special abilities; they guard your sleep, giving you peaceful dreams.
You may notice that some of our dragons have scarring, bite marks, and torn skin. These dragons are part of our fighting dragon rehabilitation program. We at Mythical Genetics deplore the cruel sport of dragon fighting, which uses our small-breed dragons as bait animals, and forces larger dragons to fight for sport. We take these creatures, mend their injuries, teach them to trust humans again, and offer them for re-homing. They need extra love, so only a kind adopter will do.
Dragons are normally beneficial creatures; they burn off dead growth in forests and create fire breaks, melt ice on frozen ponds and streams so that other animals can reach water in winter, protect the local habitat from predators, and guard their territory. They are solitary creatures unless, like ours, they are small; in that case, they bond with a protector like another dragon, or a human.
Dragons have three genders; male, female, and nurturer. The males and females breed the eggs, while nurturers care for the nest and the babies. If a mated pair of dragons can't find a nurturer, they often lay eggs in bird nests and let the birds raise the babies. The birds are usually worn out by the demands of a voracious baby dragon and don't have the time or energy for their own eggs, so our conservation efforts also save birds. You can join our efforts today by adopting a dragon and spreading the word!
