In Chinese mythology, the Fucanglong[1] (simplified Chinese: 伏藏龙; traditional Chinese: 伏藏龍; pinyin: Fúcánglóng) or Fu-ts'ang-Lung (Wade-Giles) is the Chinese dragon of hidden treasures[2] and an underworld dragon which guards buried treasure, both natural and man-made. Volcanoes are said to form when these dragons burst out of the ground to report to heaven.[3] Several tiles and light reliefs depict Fucanglong dragons serving as mounts to Immortals[4]

The Fucanglong possesses a magic pearl which is its most treasured possession.
