Dragons are the sixth species of animal available in the Olympus island, and the fifteenth in the Space Zoo. There are 8 different types of dragon. Like all Space Zoo animals, more dragons are unlocked progressively as the player upgrades the dragon habitat. They can be unlocked when the player upgrades their ship to Olympus 4, however this excludes the Quetzalcoatl, which is unlocked from Olympus 5.

- Wild: Dragons run in a pouncing manner alone in the stampede.
- When ridden: Dragons run faster than when wild and will leap up and jump over trees and rocks, smashing anything upon landing. When running they smash animals normally, similarly to elephants.
- When angry: Slows down, bucks the rider in the air and eats them.
- In habitat: Dragons will mostly laze around, curled up on the ground. Occasionally, dragons will walk around to change position, or look up and snap their jaw while still curled up.
- Selected in habitat: Dragons will get up onto their feet, lean back and roar to the sky.
Dragons are good as they offer a good amount of time of invincibility. They are also fun to use due to their jumping mechanism, which allows for more area to be smashed. Past 2000m, dragons are a luxury, giving the player precious time of invincibility to reach a higher distance. Jumping off dragons is also underrated; the player can jump in excess of 100m off a dragon.
