Dragon Cave Wiki

Mint Dragons, originally known as Light Green Dragons, are one of the original dragon species on the site. They are one of the smallest breeds of dragon outside of pygmies.[citation needed]

An "upside-down" Mint was available as part of The Dragon's Dilemma April Fool's Day event, starting 2017. "Upside-down" mints are identical to regular mints, but display a flipped sprite on their view page.

Official descriptions[]


This egg is hidden behind the others, as if it is shy.


Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It must be very shy since it keeps hiding from you.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It must be very shy since it keeps hiding from you.

It's gotten slightly bigger! It must be close to maturing.


Mint colored dragons are the most peaceful of all dragons; they only eat plants unless they scavenge meat from an already dead animal. They also have no ways to attack others or defend themselves. They are much smaller than other forms of dragons since they only double in size when they mature. Mint dragons are unable to use magic and cannot fly since they lack wings. Their looks have given rise to the common insult of calling dragons “large lizards.”
