Coral Pygmy Wyverns were released on September 1, 2019, alongside Tercorn Dragons. Like all pygmies, their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons and they can only breed with other pygmies.

Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This tiny egg is striped and feels coarse.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It bites and headbutts when bothered.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It bites and headbutts when bothered.

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

Adult[]

Coral Pygmy Wyverns are coastline vagrants, dominant in their ecosystems. They spend most of their time swimming around shallow coral atolls, snacking on the creatures that make their homes there. Don’t be fooled by their small size—these tiny dragons pack a ferocious punch; they can be painful to sharks, dragons, and other substantially larger predators. They are, unsurprisingly, difficult to integrate into human society.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • All adults are coral pink with blue stripes, but males have more areas of blue than females, including most of their tail.
  • This aposematic coloration makes other dragons give them a wide berth.
  • Males also produce venom in their horns. It is excruciatingly painful, but nonlethal to humans and larger dragons.
  • Their hides have small, sharp scales that interlock, shed skins present an environmental hazard.
  • They are very rough, and not enjoyable to touch.
  • Serrated spikes grow along the length of their spine.
  • Shed scales and spikes gradually lose their color, so these dragons have very little value to humans.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Coral Pygmy hatchlings are almost as aggressive as adults, and capable of solo survival from birth.
  • Mother leaves young to fend for themselves early on; only sticks around long enough to make sure they’ve hatched without predation.
  • They are born with the instinct to hunt for themselves and are drawn to the smell of blood.
  • Don’t do well in captivity, especially not around other young dragons. Can be bribed onto better terms with food, but this leads to integrated adults who take food as soon as they want it.
  • Begin to develop their blue markings after maturation, though solid coral adults have been observed near nests of Cassares.
  • Somewhat clumsy right after their wings grow.

Adult Behavior

  • Solitary, even among their own kind. Attack anything that moves.
  • Decently intelligent. Could be reasoned with, if only they cared to be. They are aware of how mean they are, and take some level of joy in it.
  • Mating seasons are long and drawn out, both sexes approaching each other with aggression. Males show off their blue coloration, and females bite. Hard.
  • Hard pressed to find a predator willing to bother with the effort of taking such a small morsel down

Habitat

  • Live in warm coral atolls.
  • Are highly territorial for a small area of beach and seafloor, which includes a regular hunting ground and resting place.
  • Prefer places with lots of crevices.

Diet

  • Obligate carnivores.
  • They will hunt anything small enough to be hunted, and rend into smaller pieces that which is not.
  • Surprisingly patient. Will lie in wait for hours waiting for prey to swim by.

Additional information[]

Corals are just little jerks. Sharp, territorial, stupid jerks. If they have normal dragon telepathy they’re probably just shouting profanity and insulting your mother
