The dragon breeds listed in the following sections are listed in increasing order of their weight; larger breeds appearing after the smaller breeds, unless marked with an asterisk, which indicates the size is unknown, and the placement guessed from existing information. Also note, this is only a list of where the dragon breed originated, not a complete list of where it can be found.

A more detailed list of Dragon Breeds by Weight can be found on Dragon Weight Classification. Another page, Dragon Breed Physical Characteristics, lists the known descriptions of every Dragon Breed in the Temeraire series.

Breeds Native to the Incan Empire Edit

At least () different breeds of dragon are known to exist; based on the observations of John Granby. Aside from the Copacati, none of the names of these breeds are known.

Several of the Incan dragons encountered in Crucible of Gold have last names; while one of these is Copacati - perhaps suggesting the Incan dragons have their breed as a part of their name, like in China - it is not clear whether this is an actual breed or an ayullu name - or if there are no breed names, and instead Incan dragons are grouped by family.

  1. Copacati - Heavyweight
  2. Uturuncu - Heavyweight
  3. Yupanqui - Heavyweight
  4. Tumi - Middleweight
