hmmm he's definitely a halfmoon plakat, but i don't think he's much of a dragon. He has some dragon scaling, but it's not very thick. The picture is dark though, so maybe he has more and we're just not seeing it. He is way cool looking though, he has great form!!!

He looks like a copper dragon, which isn't as pronounced looking as a true red dragon. If you're looking for a true red dragon with the pure white dragon scales, then don't get him. However, if you really like him, he does have near-perfect fins, which is pretty amazing. Maybe you could ask the seller for a picture of him that's better lit before you make your final decision? The pic is pretty dark, it's hard to figure out what his true coloring is.

Looking at him again, I don't even think he's a copper dragon. Copper red Dragons look something like this:

and a regular red dragons should look like this:

He really doesn't look like either of those. He has a little dragon scaling on his head and that's about it. A brighter picture might show more dragon scales but if you're looking for a true solid dragon, i don't think he's going to be it =/
