Pink Dragons were introduced as a substitution while phasing out Bright Pink Dragons for retirement. While they were retired, Bright Pinks could be bred to produce Pink Dragon eggs. Since their re-introduction as Aria Dragons, it is still possible to produce a Pink egg from breeding an Aria Dragon.

Also known as "BSA Pinks", this breed is well-known for its Breed Specific Action that influences the gender of eggs with more than 3 days of remaining life. Influenced eggs are guaranteed to mature into the gender of the influencer.

Unlike the original Bright Pink Dragons, Pinks can be male. They also share an egg description with the Flamingo Wyvern.

Official descriptions[]

It's bright. And pink.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon.

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

Adult[]

Pink Dragons are primarily herbivores and only eat meat during the mating season, when mates will exchange kills. When it is not breeding season, pink dragons spend most of their time incubating eggs and caring for their clan’s young. Due to their feminine color, it was traditionally thought that pink dragons were a strictly female breed, but this is not true.
