[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePhilosophersStone Earlier]], Hagrid had hatched a dragon from an egg, and planned to keep it as a pet, seemingly overlooking the fact that a) [[CaptainObvious babies get much larger with age]], and b) he lives in a ''wooden house.'' Spot the flaw.

* ''Series/GameOfThrones'', Season 2. One problem of this trope is averted when Dany is seen wearing an armoured spaulder so one of her baby dragons can comfortably sit on her shoulder.

As of Season 3, Drogon is closer to the size of a medium-to-large dog. Later on, he becomes large enough to be ridden.

* The swamp dragons of the Literature/{{Discworld}} grow to about two feet in length, are commonly bred by the wealthy as pets, and can be trained to perch on shoulders -- Lady Sybil Ramkin breeds shoulder-sitters as a popular fashion accessory. Since swamp dragons tend to react to stress or severe indigestion by spontaneously exploding, however, it's not really a good idea. Even if they don't explode, you still have [[RealityEnsues claw marks on your ball gown and dragon shit down your back]].

Swamp dragons in general are essentially what happens when a fantastic creature like a dragon needs to conform to the laws of physics.
