A dragon turtle is an enormous, red-skinned, black shelled variety of sea turtle. It has a primal and fearsome appearance. Though squat, it stands 10 feet high. Some naga captured and trained a few dragon turtles to augment their soldiers, but this tactic is not widespread. Though some thought turtles were slow and unimpressive, this creature proves that thought wrong.

Dragon turtles are one of the species of turtles that can be tamed by hunters. They are located primarily within the continent of Pandaria, typically on the coast or inland near bodies of water. For a full list of tamable dragon turtles, see the turtle subspecies section.
