Copper dragons are a type of metallic dragon. They have short horns and a pair of frills extending down from their cheeks.
Copper dragons like dry, rocky areas. While their territory is not typically so hot that they encroach upon brass or blue dragons (though it does happen), they often compete with red dragons. They have a well-earned reputation as pranksters, riddlers, and jokers; they especially enjoy humor at others' expense, though they are rarely malicious about it. When they find a red or blue dragon in or near their territory, they typically try to annoy or embarrass them into leaving, using their acid breath only when combat is inevitable.
