Mosslings are small plant dragons the size of a hamster that adapt parts of their environments to their bodies for better camouflage. They have been known to come in several different variants, the more common being the ones that mimic mossy rocks. These tend to live on rocky outcroppings in temperate forests, or more commonly these days, in parts at the base of trees, nesting amongst other moss patches. They are generally calm creatures, but when threatened will scurry away to safety, using their horns as a last resort. They are exceptionally fond of collecting shiney things, and have often been found with small troves of treasure, ranging from gems to bottle caps.

A little known fact about Verdling is that when they find themselves out of their habitat of choice for too long they tend to take up residence in dishes they find lying around and rebuild their homes in those.  These rare occurrences have only recently been documented, and for now it seems their dish of choice is old teacups and bowls.
