This is the DragonCat, or Drat, Colored by Wendy Olson in 2018.
He flys up into the air and looks for prey with his cat eyes and then he shoots fireballs at it. He likes his food well done.
Being that he lives on a tropical island, a lot of his food is seafood. He eats those close to the surface, as the fireballs have little effect once they go out. Blackened crab is one of his favorites.
