Dragon Cave Wiki

Deep Sea Dragons were released on August 26, 2009, alongside Horse, Neotropical, Water Walker and Waterhorse Dragons.

They can breed with Skywing Dragons to produce Two-Finned Bluna dragons. They also share the same egg description as Shallow Water Dragons, but since Shallow Waters do not appear in the cave, all eggs seen in the cave with this description are Deep Sea dragons.

Official descriptions[]


This egg appears to be covered in scales.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It hatched with fins instead of legs and did not seem to react well to freshwater, so you relocated it to the nearest ocean.

Its dorsal fin has grown larger, and it rarely surfaces anymore. It must be close to maturing.


Deep Sea Dragons, as their name suggests, spend most of their time in the darkest depths of the sea. They have a bioluminescent dorsal spine that serves to attract prey and communicate with their own kind. As with many deep sea animals, they generally eat whatever they can manage to bait. They rarely leave the ocean floor, surfacing only during breeding season. When they do choose to travel to the shallower depths, they avoid bright lights and will only come up far away from shore.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Fleshy growth off their head ends in a bioluminescent bulb near their mouth which acts as a lure for prey.
  • Streamlined, serpentine dragons.
  • Dorsal fins may quadruple in size near the end of hatchlinghood.
  • Dorsal fins may double in size from hatchlinghood into the first years of adulthood.
  • Grow much longer as they age and need larger fins to help them precisely navigate the waters.
  • Scales are capable of withstanding extremely high pressures, but are not well suited for localized forces.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Hatchlings are lightweight and uncoordinated.
  • Live in shallow waters but begin to venture deeper as they mature.
  • For protection and socialization, hatchlings form pods that break up as hatchlings mature and explore deeper into the ocean.
  • Can emit a variety of high-frequency clicks and buzzes, although this form of communication begins to fall out of use for adults.
  • Hatchlings left in freshwater will die before reaching adulthood.

Adult Behavior

  • Solitary, but are always friendly to other deep sea dragons they pass by.
  • Spend most of their time letting ocean currents push them around.
  • Make use of their strong fins to ensure they reach the surface at one of their breeding regions and away from shore.
  • During breeding season, dragons flash their bioluminescent spines and get to know each other before simply pairing off.
  • Males return to the ocean bottom after mating. Females transport their eggs to shallower waters, returning home after watching over the nest for a short while.
  • Females become aggressive towards males after mating season; this dulls in the time they spend watching their eggs.
  • No formal familial units, but parents and children instinctually recognize each other and may show joy when encountering relatives.


  • Not attached to any one place, letting underwater currents move them.
  • Drawn to specific breeding regions, places in which the dragons feel safe and secure.
  • Unknown how the light may affect these dragons, since they tend to avoid it.


  • Adults don’t have the option to be picky about their food and will eat anything that comes their way whenever it is lured in.
  • Hatchlings particularly enjoy shrimp.


  • When they were first released, they were only able to breed with other water species. This was quickly changed due to logic gaps.
