Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This striped egg is surprisingly heavy.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It gets into endless amounts of trouble.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It gets into endless amounts of trouble.

And look! It has grown wings and sharp struts all down its body! It must be close to maturing.

Adult[]

Sabertooth Bull Drakes are brutish creatures named for their large tusks, sharp spines, and aggressive natures. Despite their small size, these drakes are not to be underestimated or trifled with as their bodies are primed for close combat. Even their wings, seemingly their most fragile limbs, contain sharp struts used to impale dragons that challenge them. Despite all this, these drakes live in close knit groups and display great affection and loyalty among themselves. This bond can be easily shared with humans if raised from eggs or bribed with mushrooms, their favorite treat.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Sabertooth Bull Drakes are squat and stocky with short, but thick limbs and next to no dimorphism between genders.
  • Have short muzzles with large, sharp lower canines primarily used for biting and goring.
  • Sabertooth Bulls are on the shorter side of drake sizes, and have a heavyset body type, built to take traditionally damaging blows without flinching.
  • Full grown antlers are short, sharp, and do not branch.
  • Their wings are the most unusual for drakes. When fully grown, the small wings lack membrane between all struts except for the main wing arm, which is near insignificant, rendering them flightless.
  • The struts instead are short and sharp, extending all the way down the tail.
  • The struts have evolved for ramming and piercing. Even the wing arms themselves are used for attacking enemies.
  • Sabertooth Bulls tend to bear dark brown colors with pale underbellies and crimson stripes and markings, as if to mimic blood adorning their scales.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Baby Sabertooth Bull Drakes are already heavy in weight upon hatching.
  • New hatchlings lack the sharp struts of the adults, but already have the sharp canines.
  • When the drake’s wings grown in, a minor amount of membrane actually exists between the growing struts. This membrane is quickly worn to nothing in the ensuing fights the drakes have.
  • Hatchling Sabertooth Bull Drakes tend to be loud, lazy, and beg frequently for food.
  • Despite this, they tend to be very rough when playing and get into frequent fights.
  • Rather aggressive when compared to most hatchlings.
  • These hatchlings are also particularly fearless when the opportunity arises. This temperament gets them into all kinds of trouble.
  • Some postulate that the hatchlings are lazy because they save all their energy for eating, playing, or fighting.

Adult Behavior

  • Wild Sabertooth Bull Drakes are very aggressive and territorial, but mostly towards other drakes and dragons. Almost all fights for Sabertooth Bulls occur with outsiders or other species.
  • These drakes’ packs maintain a strict social code and hierarchy. Said Hierarchy doesn’t seem to have any gender influences, but is instead determined by strength and resource gathering.
  • Sabertooth Bulls are very loyal with a high tendency to stick with family and mates. Fights rarely break out between pack members.
  • Despite their appearance and apparent aggressiveness, these drakes are loving and protective parents.
  • Also friendly to those that gain their favor. Expect sloppy kisses.
  • Fights for mates occur with lots of posturing and roaring between suitors, irrespective of genders. Actual physical fights for mates are rare.
  • Sabertooth Bulls tend to mate for life or have relatively few partners.
  • The drakes will headbutt, bite, and ram opponents, using every sharp point they have. Scars often occur from ensuing fights.

Habitat

  • Seem to appreciate the heat that volcanoes give off. The reason for this is currently unknown.
  • Will often collect rocks for form nests, or steal burrows/caves from other species to suit their needs.
  • The drakes have been found to wander into other biomes rarely.

Diet

  • Omnivorous with a preference for meat.
  • Typically, the drakes will eat anything they can get their paws on.
  • Work in small packs to take down prey/enemies larger than themselves.
  • However, they have the strangest penchant for mushrooms.
  • It’s very easy to win their favor (and love) if one gives them some mushrooms or truffles.
  • Stealing their food is very, Very, VERY, strongly discouraged.
  • Those who do not heed this warning have come to regret their choices.

Additional information[]

These guys' body type were definitely inspired by bulldogs, so [the name] felt fitting.
