In one of my NaNos, my dragons (along with other fire-related creatures) eat the berries of a type of tree (which really should have a name, but hey, it was NaNo and it took up more words to say "the spindly fire berry tree with leaves of orange" than "Flamebush" ;) ) which give them certain nutrients and chemicals necessary for their flaming. The story actually focused on a disease which affected the tree and started killing the fire-creatures. The phoenixes in that story ate the fire berries alone, but the dragons would eat anything that tickled their tastebuds.

I love this idea. If you have forests of the Flamebush then you also have potential for infestations of dragons and other fiery things. ;)

For dragons that are sentient, how do you deal with the notion of eating humans or other sentients?

Maybe the sentient dragons are cannibals. :0

I want a little cupboard dragon that eats the bugs that get into flour and pasta. :3

There may be sentient dragons who eat stupid or witless dragons, believing themselves to be the superior race worthy of such domination.

I wonder if fairytale dragons always want maidens because maidens have a higher fat content than knights.

I extremely doubt that's the case...

Not only would it be easier to take the maiden (I mean, the knight's just gonna kill him) but she also won't be wearing as much armor (if you're a dragon, do you seriously want armor stuck in your teeth?). ;)

Now I'm thinking about writing a fairytale in which the knight goes undercover as a lady in distress so he can kill the dragon. :cool:

Yes, do it.

I have dragons that are about the size of owls, only shoot out tiny sparks and also have a glowing light that attracts insects. Which I just realized basically makes them bug zappers. They also eat tiny mammals.

My dragons eat meat but the ones that live along the coast also eat fish (they just swoop down and catch something big). Fire is just part of their biology, they don't eat anything special for it. But the ones on the coast like to sleep in rocky pools along the shore, with the seawater lapping around them, to cool their bellies. ;)

I've played with stories ideas with dragons and I have one short story where the MC is a dragon but I never really thought about what they ate. I always just assumed they would go hunt things like deer and rabbits(depending on the dragons size) whenever they got hungry. In one of my stories though, the wild dragons are the only ones who actually eat people and they are not sentient. There is a kingdom, though, where most of the inhabitants can change into dragons at will so they go and fight the wild ones whenever they show up. Of course they are always hungry after a big fight, but they turn back into their human forms before eating. The fire always comes from magic, because the world is full of it, but there are some things that, depending on the dragon, help their fire burn hotter and such.

Ahaha, I love all the ideas ya'll are tossing around!

Sort of related to food... are your dragons susceptible to poisonous substances? (Plants, toxic waste, animals, etc.)
