Dragon Cave Wiki

Harvest Dragons were released on October 10, 2010, alongside Ember Dragons.

Harvest Dragon eggs are found in different habitats depending on season. They appear in the Alpine during winter and in the Forest during spring, summer, and autumn. Due to seasonal rarity, they are rarer and much higher-priced in market during autumn and winter.[1] It is recommended to hunt, breed, or buy them in spring and summer if possible.

Official descriptions[]


This heavy egg feels slightly warm.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It always seems to be hungry.

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


Harvest Dragons are a large, flightless breed most often found in heavily forested mountains. Normally shy, these omnivorous dragons keep to themselves in remote regions, but in the fall they descend from their high territory to search for food—and lots of it. During the autumn months, harvest dragons will eat whatever they can find, from large and small animals to nuts and fruit. In the winter they retreat into large caves and hibernate until spring, living off the fat they have built up.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Horns grow slowly but continuously throughout the dragon’s lifetime.
  • Have two large toes that support most of the dragon’s weight; a small claw is all that remains of a vestigial third toe.
  • In very old dragons the horns curl around the face, much like a ram.
  • Claws are small and fairly blunt.
  • Teeth suiting an omnivorous diet.

Hatchling Behavior

  • They especially love sweet foods, though they’re not exactly picky.
  • Watch your fingers when they know you have food.
  • Always hungry.
  • Playful but very clumsy.
  • Equally happy to play by themselves and with other hatchlings.

Adult Behavior

  • Fairly active for a dragon of their bulk, contributing to the large appetite.
  • While not the most territorial breed, they are rather possessive of food.
  • In the autumn, forage almost constantly (albeit slowly). In the spring and summer, spend about half of the day foraging.
  • Females guard their eggs but hatchlings are left to fend for themselves.


  • Found in both deciduous and coniferous forests, but prefer areas with large, widely spaced trees and little undergrowth.
  • In more southern latitudes, they are found at higher elevations than in the north.


  • Eat almost anything.
  • Only occasionally able to catch faster animals such as deer.
  • Will eat carrion.
  • Diet is primarily plant-based.


  • Harvest Dragons are sometimes confused with Pumpkin Dragons because the word "harvest" is prominently featured in the Pumpkin dragon's egg description.
