Scalies are anthropomorphic creatures of the reptile and amphibian variety. As furries are nicknamed such for their humanoid shape covered in fur, scalies tend to have a coating of scales much like the animals they represent. However, some scalies, including draconids, have very light or no true scales, but flesh more like a human's.
Scalies are also furry fans with a preference for lizard, reptile, dragon and dinosaur characters and themes. It is also a self-moniker for the users of alt.fan.dragons, a Usenet discussion group for all things draconic. The singular form of "scalies" is "scaly". Some well known Scaly artists include AmberScale, Fossil, Chris Sawyer, Lizardbeth, Kaa Bakensobek, Bahamut, and many more.
