For my project there is an environment with a very rapid fire regime due to the usual stuff like a dry seasonal climate and dragons. While most animals escape the flames by running, burrowing, or flying away; there is one that simply takes the heat.
It’s a massive Xenarthian that looks like the love child of a Megatherium and a Pangolin !
It’s fire specific adaptations:
•Covered in Keretainious scales that are heat resistant and have a gloss to them that causes the burning venom sprayed by dragons to simply flow off like the water off a duck’s back so that it can clobber the puny lizard to death (dragons weigh like 200 pounds in this setting)
• Sweats a bunch when it gets super hot, maybe natural flame retardant.
• Can close its nostrils and hold its breath for a considerable amount of time due to a very slow heart rate and big lungs.
Is this feasible?
