How to Tame Rock Eating Boulder Dragons | HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON


– [Jessica] Welcome back,
future dragon riders to Dragon School, the
place where we teach you everything you need
to know about dragons! I’m Jessica, dragon
expert, teacher, and lover of all things dragons! Seriously, I love dragons. Anyway, I’m here to teach
you how each dragon works, so one day, you can ride
one in the wild too! Unless one crushes
you like a stone. Maybe consider a helmet. (large rock crashing) So, if you’re able to
finish this next class, you might have what it takes
to be a real dragon rider! But, I’ll be the judge of that. Let’s jump in! (chains clinking)
(exciting music) (dragon roaring) Today, we roll right
into the Boulder Class. They’re round and
tough, plain and simple. They eat rocks and
have tiny wings that lift their
gargantuan bodies. Yet, despite their
tough exteriors, they’re bundles of joy! (adventurous music) The most common dragon from the Boulder class is the Gronkle. (dragon roaring)
This rotund dragon loves eating rocks. They’re incredibly
slow and lazy, but are also incredibly strong and carry even the
heaviest of vikings. The most fascinating
trait of the Gronkle is its ability to melt down
any rock or metal it eats and spit it back
out, like a forge! – No respect at all. – [Jessica] This proves useful for making metals like
famous Gronkle iron, an extremely tough and
fire-resistant metal that we use every day
for armor or equipment like Hiccup’s
reinforced diving belt. The Gronkle can also melt
away any chains or bars that might keep itself
or other dragons trapped in captivity. If you do find one in battle, be careful of its
hot fire breath and blunt, club-like tail. But don’t worry too much! Gronkles aren’t aggressive
like other dragons. In fact, all you need to do is rub a little dragon
nip on their nose, and you’ll have a new pet
rock dragon in no time! (ominous music)
(person screaming) Similar to the Gronkle is
the even lazier Hot Burple. This mound of dragon
has an uncanny ability to sleep while flying, but this is no excuse for you
to sleep and fly, Trainer. (person yelling) Now, if you were
thinking that all Boulder class dragons were
friendly, think again! The Catastrophic Quaken
is a stubborn creature known for its ability
to roll up into a ball and pulverize
anything in its path, as well as creating shock waves by smashing itself
into the ground. They can be very
difficult to train, but if you show
loyalty and compassion, they’ll curl up right
next to you in no time. Digging deeper into the
more frightening dragons, the Whispering Death is one of
the scariest-looking dragons this side of the Edge. These creatures strike
from underground and consume everything
with their six rows of rotating, razor-sharp teeth. Thankfully, they have
pretty poor eyesight and can’t stand the light, so you should be safe
if you’re careful. Unless you run into the even
stronger Screaming Death, who can thrive in open sunlight. Then, you’re in trouble. Bond with it quickly before
it shreds you into pieces. – We’re gonna die. (dragon loudly roaring) – [Jessica] Now,
you’d be mistaken if you thought these
were actually statues. These are the near-motionless
Sentinel dragons. They guard the Isle of
Vanaheim’s dragon graveyard, and they don’t take kindly
to people coming or going. With their ability to
wing blast, breathe fire, and sonic screech,
these dragons are formidable guards to the Isle. But don’t fret! Sentinels are completely blind and can’t find you if
you mask your scent. Respect their
grounds, and Sentinels will offer their respect back. – As you were! – [Man] You know they’re
all blind, right? – [Jessica] Finally,
we end on the beefiest Boulder of
them all, the Eruptadon! Eruptadons tend to
dwell near volcanoes, given their lava-proof hides and their insatiable
appetite for, well, lava. They love lava so much
that they’ll dig into volcanoes just to eat some. However, they aren’t
known to be threats. In fact, villages
near active volcanoes praise the Eruptadon for
eating up any volcanic threat. Some places even call
it The Great Protector. The Eruptadon is a
fantastic monument atop a very diverse and
amazing class of dragons. (adventurous music) All right, students. Time to check in if you’ve been sleeping like the Hot Burple. Let’s see if you can answer
this Boulder Class question. – [Man] Check that! – [Jessica] Which dragon
is completely blind? A. The Whispering Death, B. The Fireworm, C. The Gronkle, D. The Sentinel. (ominous music) (timer clicking) Time’s up! Let’s see what the
right answer is. While the answer is almost
A. The Whispering Death, the correct answer
is D. The Sentinel! Did you get it right? You did? Man, I thought I had you there! Well done! And that’s another Dragon
School Class in the books. You’re rolling right
along, aren’t you? You remind me of a younger me, but with less
charming good looks. Anyway, be sure to
come back next time, where we’ll talk about
even more dragons and how to be a terrific rider because dragons rock! (chiming music)
