The Swedish Short-Snout is a dragon native to Sweden. Its habitat is wild, uninhabited areas, mostly the northern mountains of Sweden. Its scales are silvery blue, and its powerful flame is also a brilliant blue colour - and hot enough to reduce timber and bone to ashes in seconds. Its attractive skin is much sought after for the making of gloves and shields. Since it rarely comes into contact with humans, the Short-Snout has less deaths to its name than most dragons.
The trophy awarded to the winner of the Annual Broom Race between Kopparberg and Arjeplog is designed after the Swedish Short-Snout.
In the 1994 Triwizard Tournament, Cedric Diggory had to face a Short-Snout in the First Task. He Transfigured a rock into a dog to distract the dragon, and retrieved the Golden egg it was guarding.
