The dragons in this family look like sharks or dolphins. They have blow holes, or nostrils that resemble
blow holes. Even though they look like mammals, they are dragons and they all lay eggs. They are
friendly (except the Dino shark which can be dangerous to people)  They all have smooth dolphin-like
skin, which I describe as "rubbery". They use echolocation and communicate with whistles, grunts and
clicks. They lay their eggs at the bottom and the whole pod guards them.
