|“||The sagas tell how the very next day Humongously Hotshot, dressed all in black, sailed up the Gorge of the Thunderbolt of Thor and into the heartland of UG's territories, right under the nose of the sleeping Screech Dragons and somehow escaping the notice of the swooping Raptortongues.||”|
|— How to Seize a Dragon's Jewel|
Screech Dragons are mentioned once in How to Seize a Dragon's Jewel.
There is not image or description of a Screech Dragon. Because the Screech Dragon is mentioned as living in the Gorge, they may be classified as Mountain Dragons. Raptortongues are also Mountain Dragons.
Presumably, Screech Dragons are loud and vocal dragons, due to the 'Screech' in their names. It is possible that they are sometimes utilized as guard dragons, since the book notes Hotshot had to sail by them stealthily to get to Tantrum. However, this may also mean that they are simply loud and aggressive dragons.
