Summary: All you ever wanted to know about Green Dragons but probably didn't know you wanted to find out!
Article: Green dragons are 20 to 25 meters in length. They are the smallest of the dragons. Female, but non-egglayers; they were genetically engineered to be sterile by Kitti Ping. However, that knowledge has been lost, and the current belief is that chewing firestone makes them sterile. They do however rise to mate, about every six weeks. In a weyr that means that there are greenflights going on pretty much every other day or so - plenty of activity for the male dragons!
