"The boys rushed to get their baskets, chattering happily and excitedly"
―Book 1

Dragon baskets appear in How to Train Your Dragon of the How to Train Your Dragon Book series.

Description

Dragon baskets are deep woven baskets that can be carried on a human's back like a back-pack. It has multiple latches around the opening at the top. It is not particularly escape-proof, as its cargo typically is in hibernation.

Purpose

The Dragon baskets are used by the Hairy Hooligan Tribe Initiates to capture dragons on Dragon Catching Day, the first portion of the Dragon Initiation Program. The initiates climb into the Dragon Nursery, quietly select a hibernating dragon from thousands, and gently place them in the basket to transport from the cave.

Appearances
