I see nothing wrong with it. It'd be cool to have a tiny little dragon type. That said, I think it would be better recieved if it IS the apple core or something, and its head is poking out as far as it can, then it eats its body to grow. Something like it starts by coming out where the stem is, then its apple becomes more and more eaten while its out-of apple gets bigger and stronger, until the core is just the tail-ornament.
