The Tiddly-Nip Tick-Botherer is a species of Nanodragon and there is not yet known much about them, except the fact that they have yellow skin and a short tail. It might be inferred from their name that Tiddly-Nip Tick Botherers prefer eating ticks. If so, this certainly would be very useful to Vikings and livestock. These particular species of nanodragon can speak Dragonese.
Tiddly-Nip Tick Botherers, along with other nanodragons, are not seen in the Book series, and are only described in The Complete Book of Dragons. In that book, one pictured on a leaf with small eyes (at right) and another is in a match box with remarkably bigger eyes. One Tick Bother does appear, however,in the final Book, How to Fight a Dragon's Fury (pictured at left).
