Plot Summary

This article, or section of an article, is very short. You can help PhantomWiki by expanding it.  

It is a slightly altered retelling of the tale of the Phantom encountering Dinosaur of genus Stegosaurus, whom he calls Stegy, and taking it to the Isle of Eden The Swamp Dragon. The 21st Phantom is informed by the jungle people of the presence of a Dragon in The Great Swamp. He finds the Stegosaurus and without capturing him trains him by rewarding the creature with its favourite food. Relevant authorities refuse to believe the Phantom about the existence of a live Stegosaurus as the Dinosaurs are believed to be extinct. The Phantom subsequently takes it to the Isle of Eden.
