Cactlings are a desert dwelling sub-species of plant dragon that prefer the arid landscapes of the world. They live in the hollowed out holes in or around cactus patches, mimicking the spiney plants almost perfectly. Their thick skin allows them to climb the cacti, while their spines make them appear, from a distance to just be another briar on the plant. Their tails have even started evolving to fan out and mimic cactus flowers, which act as lures to entice insects to come within reach of their mouths. As such, they tend to live in groups and bait food for others in their colony due to the stubby nature of their limbs. Very few animals will tangle with these dragons as their spines are as sharp and unfriendly as the cacti themselves.
A little known fact about Verdlings 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.
This is a one of a kind art piece. The figure is cast in urethane resin and is set in a vintage teacup with faux plants and real rocks and sand. It stands approximately 4" tall and is 3.75" across.
