Bio:
Kukulkan (Ku-kul-can) is one of the largest feathered serpentine dragons of North America, being about the same size as Quetzalcoatl however there have been reports and sightings of Kukulcans that were bigger. If true these larger Kukulkans would most likely be female.

These large dragon's most distinctive features are the large horns that grow to cover the eyes and the curled in tusks growing out the corner of the mouth.
The horns and tusk seem to indicate to other Kukulkans the age and maturity of an individual rather then defense. However some male Kukulkans have been observed touching horns, perhaps to size one another up.
The horns grow to cover the dragon's line of sight meaning that they lose what little binocular vision they have as the horns grow, making the Kukulcan almost exclusively an ambush predator and scavenger.

These dragons poses long, wispy feathers covering the body and shorter, finer feathers covering the head. The colour of the feathers help the dragon camouflage in forested areas and make it easier for them to stalk their prey.

The Kukulkan is a close relative of Quetzalcoatl and uses their gas bladders in the same way as Quetzalcoatl, to relieve pressure off their organs which allows them to grow to their large sizes without becoming aquatic.
