The '''Antipodean Opaleye''' is a breed of [[Dragon]] native to [[New Zealand]], although it has been known to migrate to [[Australia]] in search of territory. It resides in valleys, which is unusual as dragons typically reside on mountains. It is generally considered one of the most beautiful dragons, with pearly scales that line its body, and glittering multi-coloured eyes that have no pupils. The Opaleye's eggs are pale grey and have been known to be mistaken by [[Muggle]]s for fossils. Its flame is vivid red, and the Opaleye is not particularly aggressive, rarely killing unless it is hungry making it the easiest of dragons to train. Its prey of choice is sheep, but it has been known to attack larger animals. In the [[1970s]], several [[kangaroo]] killings were thought to have been caused by a male Opaleye that had been ousted from its territory by a dominant female.
