Howler Drakes were released on April 6, 2014, alongside the Glaucus Drakes. Their release was the first where TJ announced that he's going to try out a midday release instead of the "normal" midnight release.

Just like other DC Drakes, they can only breed with their own kind, and their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons. Together with the Glaucus Drake, they were the first drakes to receive dimorphism.

Official Dragon DescriptionsEdit


"You hear strange noises coming from inside this egg."


"Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It almost never stops chirping."

Mature HatchlingEdit

"Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It almost never stops chirping.
And look! It has gotten bigger! It must be close to maturing."


"It is no mystery where Howler Drakes got their names. Though not very bright, these emotive creatures employ an impressive vocabulary of loud chortles, shrieks, and songs to communicate with one another, and almost never stop chattering. Howler Drakes inhabit dense jungles, foraging in the fertile soil for mushrooms, tubers, and insects. When threatened, a Howler will flare its wings to display its bright red eye spots, while letting out an ear-splitting scream."

There are no notes available for this breed. Check back later; new information will be added periodically.


  • On May 21, 2016, Howler Drakes received a major update to their egg sprites, as part of Dragon Cave's 10th Birthday; all DC Drakes released on the site when this event occurred 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.

Additional InformationEdit

I don't have a fancy ref sheet for the Howlers but

The Neotropical Dragon is the Howler's sworn enemy. Always trying to steal their mushrooms. *shakes fist*
