'''Urulóki''' or '''Urulóci''' ([[Quenya|Q]], pron. {{IPA|[ˌuruˈloːki]}}) were also known as [[Fire-drakes]], fire breathing [[Dragons]]. [[Glaurung]], the [[Father of Dragons]], was the first of the species.

[[Ancalagon]] was also considered of the Urulóki, as was [[Smaug]] who may have been the last of the great Urulóki. Other lesser dragons were recorded as having survived after the end of the [[Third Age]].
