The Common or Garden and the Basic Brown are so similar that they can be dealt with together. These are the most familiar breeds - the ones we instantly think of when we say 'dragons'. They are poor hunters, but they are easy to train. These dragons are the best kind for family pets, although, as with a lion or a tiger, they should never be left unsupervised with very young children.
