When Dr Griffin finds a giant dragon egg on her very doorstep, she is completely stumped, her specialism is hamsters not dragons! She needs help, and fast, if the egg hatches how will she look after it? What will it eat? Where will it live? Who will help her??
Luckily, The Hive department of Zoology is on the case; they’re forming a team of agents to help Dr Griffin learn how to take care of this mythical creature. Are you up to the challenge? You’ll need to conduct your own zoology research, learning what they eat, creating miniature habitats to find out where they live, and understanding how to track wild animals. You’ll even build your own dragon and compete in the ultimate dragon tournament! Have you got what it takes to make sure we give this baby dragon the best chance of survival?
But it’s not just about surviving. There have been troubling rumours about a scheming villain trying to get their hands on the dragon egg for their own “private collection”. It seems the dragon might also need protecting! Do you have the brains to outsmart this villain? There’s no time to lose, we’ve got to help Dr Griffin prepare her dragon for the wild…and keep it safe from thieving hands!!
