Blue[]

Sapphire Dragons were so named for their brilliant blue-green color, which is reminiscent of the gemstone. This breed was historically hunted for their scales; even long after, they remain distrustful of humans. Normally a Sapphire is not very aggressive, but they will defend themselves vigorously if under attack. Their diet consists mainly of fruit, with smaller portions of large insects and other invertebrates. Males woo females with vocalizations similar to bird songs. Sapphire Dragons are very loyal to their mates, and it is not unusual that they pair for life.

Variant determination[]

The addition of the pink and yellow variants introduced new variant mechanics to the game. Sapphire eggs always begin as the original blue variant. To become the pink variant, the egg must be willingly abandoned by a user. Automatic abandonment due to scroll limits does not change the Sapphire's color. To become the yellow variant, the egg or hatchling must receive a high number of views, in excess of 4,000 overall views; the exact threshold may vary. Pink eggs and hatchlings cannot turn yellow.

Variant Condition
Sapphire blue egg Blue Default; newly created eggs will be this variant
Sapphire pink egg Pink Produced when a Sapphire egg is willingly abandoned by a user
Sapphire yellow egg Yellow Produced when a Sapphire egg or hatchling receives a very high number of views

Trivia[]

  • Some users speculated that the different shades of colors used for Sapphire Dragons related to the different colors of the corundum mineral that makes up sapphires. Infinis confirmed and elaborated on this: "Ruby and sapphire are both corundum, but while ruby refers only to red corundum, sapphire is a something of a catchall term for every other color of corundum."[1]

Additional information[]

Sapphire dragon concept

As Infinis already posted there are many lovely sapphire colors , not only the blue one. They can stand on their hind legs and walk, but only short distances. They have feathers on their head, the Sapphire Dragon is singing in the sprite pose, just like it is written in the description. They have beautiful voices similar to birds.
