The frost wyrm is a member of the dragon family- one of the smallest, measuring on average only 24cm long.
These wyrms radiate cold- in lower temperatures, even enough to freeze the spot on which they are perched.
For this reason they are unpopular with gardeners- woe betide any delicate stem that comes in contacts with the wyrm’s icy touch!
However, seeing a frost wyrm can be a good sign- a wyrm in a sloe bush means the berries are ready for picking- or so says the old wives tale.
