Pargulus Pygmies were released on May 21, 2020, as part of Dragon Cave's 14th birthday celebration. This breed has three colored variants, which are determined by biome of origin.

Like all pygmies, their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons and they can only breed with other pygmy breeds.

Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This tiny egg resembles a seed.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It keeps bringing you all sorts of foraged foods.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It keeps bringing you all sorts of foraged foods.

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

Adult[]

Pargulus Pygmies can often be found tending to plants and foraging for food. They like to care for other living things, be it plant or animal, and will often leave the food from their foraging trips outside the dens of those who need it or even just those they think could use a treat. These colorful little dragons are especially attentive to anyone who might be struggling to find food themselves, such as the elderly, the sick, or the very young. Pargulus pygmies have a surprisingly large range considering their small size. They have been known to travel far and wide to find food to bring back to their friends.

Variant determination[]

The color variant of a cave-born Pargulus Pygmy is determined by its biome of origin, with each variant occuring in two biomes. Pargulus eggs produced by breeding or purchased from the market will be a random variant.

Additional information[]

Pargulus Pygmy Concept Art.png

- They weren't originally going to come in multiple flavors. After testing out some palettes, I was struggling to narrow it down to one. So after asking some opinions, I narrowed it down to 3 instead.
- Their name comes from a combination of the latin words for 'little' and 'gatherer'
- Citrus trees grow well in the desert and the tropics, peaches in volcanic soil and temperate climates, and berry bushes along the coast and in valleys.

- The plural of Pargulus is Pargulus.
