Dragon Cave Wiki

Hooktalon Dragons were released on May 21, 2015, alongside Greater Spotted Drakes and Magelight Pygmies as part of Dragon Cave's 9th birthday celebration.

Like all other two-headed dragons, they can only breed with other two-headed breeds, and their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons.

Official descriptions[]


The surface of this egg is rough and sharp.


Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It has two heads and growls at you occasionally.

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


Hooktalon Dragons are a two-headed breed named for the long, curved claw that grows on the first finger of each of their hands. Their skin is tough and covered in razor sharp, tooth-like scales, and as they age they grow a dense, keratinous club on the end of their tail. Wild Hooktalons live in migratory, matriarchal clans around deserts and hot scrublands, hunting and stealing kills from other dragons as they please. They are notoriously ill-tempered and the females, being the largest and most aggressive of their kind, will often lash out at their male counterparts in brief, explosive disputes over anything and everything. The only creature with which a Hooktalon will not fight is itself: though the dragon has two heads and thus two brains, a strong connection between its brains allows them to function as one.

Additional information[]

  • Regarding Odeen's choice in pairings for the Hooktalon dragon:
<Odie> i literally made hooktalons for bloodscales
<Odie> they are meant for each other

  • Regarding Hooktalon behaviour:
Also, with regard to people who seem to think there's some weird bra-burning bent to the hooktalon's behavior, and yadda yadda would it be kosher if the genders were swapped, I'm surprised only one person picked up on this.

They are spotted hyenas. They are spotted hyenas with wings and two heads. They're also dragons, not social justice warriors. Please calm down.
