  1. dragons are mystical, magical creatures. there are legends that state that dragon’s blood can heal wounds and diseases. if this tree’s sap really does heal wounds and cure diseases, i’d say it’s a good name 🙂

  2. you should tell that this tree has it’s shape to help it gather water from the moisture in the air since it grows in desert environments.
