The Lesser-Spotted Squirrelserpent appeared twice in A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons — both times as a distraction, once to Hiccup and once to a Stealth Dragon.

Physical Appearance

No description or picture is given of the Lesser-Spotted Squirrelserpent. Instead the Book details the Shortwing Squirrelserpent. We might assume that these two Squirrelserpents are similar in appearance, except perhaps the Lesser-Spotted Squirrelserpents is a tad smaller ("lesser") and spotted.

Because the Shortwing Squirrelserpent is classified as a Tree Dragon, and because of the 'Squirrel' portion of its name, we might assume the Lesser-Spotted Squirrelserpent is also a Tree Dragon.

"The Lesser-spotted Squirrelserpent" Hiccup said to himself. . . . Hiccup was so busy with this thought and with watching the Lesser-Spotted Squirrelserpent wheeling through the air in a lazy arc, that he lost his concentration, and his foot slipped on the crumbly edge of the window.

In turn, the Stealth Dragon who was supposed to get Hiccup from the window was likewise distracted by the same Squirrelserpent.
