Glaucus Drakes were released on April 6, 2014, alongside Howler Drakes. As drakes, they can only breed with other drake breeds, and their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons.

Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This striped egg feels moist.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It’s mostly white but has a blue stripe down its back.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It’s mostly white but has a blue stripe down its back.

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

Adult[]

Glaucus Drakes have curious personalities. They spend more of their time sunbathing and idly floating in the water than exploring. Because they move very little as they float, Glaucus Drakes can ambush prey relatively easily. They can dive to surprisingly deep depths, and eat a variety of fish and marine plants. Most of them live in tight-knit family groups.

Trivia[]

  • Glaucus and Howler Drakes' release was the first where TJ09 announced that he's going to try out a midday release instead of the "normal" midnight release.
  • On May 21, 2016, Glaucus Drakes received a major update to their egg sprites, as part of Dragon Cave's 10th Birthday. All drakes received the same downsizing update. This update was done so that the sprites better fit the breed's description of having slightly smaller eggs than those of standard dragons.
  • Glaucus Drakes appear to be based on blue glaucus nudibranchs of the same name.

Additional information[]

  • During the dragon's release, it was revealed that the egg description was changed just prior to release:
I actually didn't give the eggs that description. ovo But I don't mind it being changed. It's all cool in my book.
