American Amphitheres, known scientifically as the Draco Americanus Tex and also referred to as the moth dragon due to their moth like wings. It is a legless Ampithere. They hunt in packs at night and drive their prey of cows and buffalo over cliffs, and intimidating them with fire, tail strikes and high pitch shrieks. Their lairs are boulder mounds or caves in the sides of sandstone valleys.
They grow 15 feet long, and 8 to 10 feet high with a purple top and a bright colored belly.Their eggs are green with paler green markings. Young of this species are able to fly instantly after being born, different than their cousin, the Mexican Amphithere as they have to remain in their nest for three years. The young American Amphithere's, however, are not as good flyers as the adults of their species who are even able to hover with their moth like wings.
