** The historical Norse had horses, including some of the largest breeds in Europe. Sure, we don't see any livestock but sheep in the village, but it's possible that Hiccup's people ''used'' to have horses before the dragons snatched the last of them in their raids, and the kids had ridden horseback when they were little.

** Toothless seems agile enough even with his prosthesis that, ''before'' his injury, he could probably have been nabbing seabirds on the wing, leaving the less-elusive prey for the clumsier dragons to collect.

** They were constantly raided by dragons for food, with a large amount of disorder during and after. Even if someone noticed the fish vanishing, their first thought would probably be that a dragon got to it during the last raid.

*** I don't know if this is a factor or not, but they're two different species, therefore, different habits. Honestly, I don't think the Green Death could 'actively' hunt for itself, so it had to resort to other dragons while Bewilderbeast can actively hunt for itself.

*** In Hiccup's OpeningNarration, he specifically says that vikings have "stubbornness issues." Tradition and blindness make the most sense in this case.

** The [[WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon2 sequel]] shows two Bewilderbeasts, which while being a different breed than the Green Death are of a similar size and capabilities. [[spoiler:Hiccup's mother]] explains that every dragon nest has a "queen" of this nature.

** Yes, he does bend his claws. It's during the scene where he's trying to climb out of the sinkhole to save Hiccup, there's a quick closeup of his paw, and his claws definitely bend to grip the rock. There's no explanation for it beyond {{rule of perception}}, the animators wanted to show how determined he was, so they basically gave him the claw equivalent of {{feather fingers}}.
