And look! It has grown brightly-colored wings! It must be close to maturing.


Anagallis Dragons are a medium-sized omnivorous breed. Widespread and adaptable, their easygoing nature enables them to flourish under most conditions. They are social creatures, fun-loving and outgoing, and will readily defend smaller dragons from others’ aggression. They are fond of sunshine, and can often be found basking on rocks; on cloudy or stormy days they are more reluctant to venture out, and will often hide themselves away until the weather is more favorable.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • They have dextrous forefeet, capable of manipulating small objects.
  • Their claws are retractible.
  • While not prehensile, their tails are very flexible and sometimes used as a defensive weapon.
  • Their comparatively short, rounded wings are adapted to flight amid dense vegetation.
  • Males have a stripe of pink along the outer edge of their wings, with corresponding gold markings along the edge of the inner wing.
  • Females have a stripe of purple along the outer edge of their wings, with corresponding gold markings along the edge of the inner wing.
  • Their golden horns are prized by hunters.
  • Eye color ranges between shades of purple and blue.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Newly-hatched young blend well into the undergrowth.
  • As they near maturity, they begin to develop brightly-colored markings.
  • They tend to be very vocal.
  • Hatchlings tend to form attachments easily. As a result, the parents have to watch them closely to keep them from wandering off after any creature that happens by.
  • Their playful nature does not seem to decrease significantly as they mature.
  • Males often develop their markings slightly later than females.
  • Frequently exhibit “play bowing.”
  • They are not picky eaters.

Adult Behavior

  • While they will fight when necessary, they prefer to use cunning and trickery to evade threats.
  • Their behavior is an excellent predictor of weather patterns. They can sense foul weather coming long before the signs are clear to others, and are rarely caught without a safe place to retreat to.
  • They are capable of producing a wide array of vocalizations, and are known to mimic the calls of other dragons, and even non-dragon species.
  • In the wild, they mate for life.
  • They have very elaborate mating rituals, including presenting each other with flowers and brightly-colored stones and courtship dances which may take place over several days.
  • They are very fond of “decorating” and will often gather flowers to adorn their surroundings–and sometimes themselves.


  • They are very fond of sunlight, and can often be found basking in open areas.
  • Rather than establishing a single cave or nest, they tend to have multiple hideaways that they can retreat to in case of danger or foul weather.
  • They are very agile at maneuvering in wooded environments, both in the air and on the ground.
  • They tend to congregate near water, and do not seem daunted even by fast-moving rivers.


  • Their favorite treat is honey. Their scales are tough enough to protect them in all but a few vulnerable places, but the stings they do receive don’t seem to bother them.
  • They frequently hunt cooperatively, especially when pursuing large game.
  • They never hunt other dragons. Should they kill one in a fight, they will not consume it afterwards.
  • Due to their association with healing plants, some believe that consuming ground Anagallis horns, bones, and other parts may heal diseases. Most experts find these claims dubious at best.

Additional information[]

:3 I'm so glad you guys like the egg design.

I keep thinking of it as a confetti egg, myself. These bbs are ready to party from the minute they're born. XD

Eeee! *bounces* So happy to see people aren't disappointed with them now they're All Grown Up!

(And for anyone curious about where the pink/purple accents come from - I wouldn't have thought of them either, but apparently nature has other ideas ;D)

ETA: re the Tinsel pairing - o.o What I would not give for one of those... *drools*

<3 all around - so fun to wake up to lots of happy! :D

I'm very glad people approve of the blue/red choices for male and female. Fun fact: Some early naturalists studying the flowers thought that the blue variety of plant was the female and the red was the male.

'Nother fun fact: Apparently "Anagallis" derives from a Greek word meaning "to laugh."

<hands you virtual cookies> I wondered if anyone else would remember those books! They are indeed the original source of my love for these pretty flowers. ^^

There will definitely be more info about them. As proven by the leak at the beginning of the release... their encyclopedia info is set up and ready to go, so it should be available soon.

Yep, the plural for their name is the same as the singular, just like deer/deer. Hopefully that won't prove too confusing, but yeah. Making up a shortened nickname is always an option too.
