Concept idea for a new species thing, not too original, I know was fun to do though.

--Quillback Hyriads--

Hyriad: Of the reptilian family, creatures with talloned digits, and an
opposable thumb. The body structure of Hyriads resembles that of
Dragons, with elongated necks, snake-like crania, and long spindly
tails. Structures vary slightly according to habitat, looking either
more feline, or more like ostritches.

Also known as the 'Swamp Dragon' due to the fact that this creature
favours swampland habitats. Although there is no proven link of kin to
the greater dragons.
Small in scale, usually about 40-50cm at the shoulders, they prey on
small mammals such as marsh hares, fish, swamp birds and amphibians.
The long quills ornating its back are a sign of maturity, as well as
secrete toxins to stun potential attackers.
The small set of wings is usually the reason why they are thought of as
dragons, however these creatures do not fly. The wings are usually used
by males to show off to females, and are generally tucked tightly
against the back. They also offer the quillback propulsion when in or
under water.

Quillbacks are far from being dull witted, as is generally beleived.
The creatures, although small in size, are quite intelligent, and
communicate with a complex set of clicks, whistles and chirps.

Having been hunted for its mane of quills, the species is in decline in
the Wilds, and can only be sighted in the deepest reaches of the
swamplands of the Western continent.
