"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It’s very playful and likes to be around other dragons.
And look! It has grown wings, and its throat has turned red with small speckles on it. It must be close to maturing!"
Adult (♀)[edit | edit source]
"Speckle-Throated Dragons are an active, playful breed. They are easily excited and rarely remain still, spending much of their time in the air. Living in groups of up to sixty dragons, they nest in open plains and at the bases of mountains. Their speckled throats are their most distinctive feature, as well as the loud, echoing call they produce to communicate with one another. Female Speckle-Throats are slightly smaller than males and lack a head crest. However, they are swifter and more agile and prefer to hunt in small groups in order to take down prey."

Encyclopedia Entry[edit | edit source]
- Genders are remarkably similar to each other in appearance—aside from size and the male’s head crest.
- Black-ringed tails end in a poof.
- Creamy light pink color that is soothing to the eyes.
- Young hatchling’s throats are completely pink. The speckles appear later in age.
- Remarkably coordinated at a young age and begin vocalizing shortly after hatching.
- Hatchlings chirrup, losing the ability as they mature and become capable of producing their distinctive loud, echoing call.
- Playful and spend lots of time creating their own new games.
- Friendly and will easily befriend any creature that gives them attention.
- Learn to trust others very easily.
- Care very deeply for friends.
- Easily distractable.
- May cheer up gloomy or somber friends with foolish antics.
- Fond of games—e.g. racing, tag, and follow-the-leader.
- Fiercely protective of the pack and friends.
- Males and females both protect friends from danger. Males will distract the threat by flushing their head crests and rushing at it, giving females a chance to speedily swoop in and out to land vicious hits to the threat.
- Strong sense of justice and will not stand for any dragon being harmful to the pack.
- Settle small disputes with an aerial competition of interesting and complex tricks.
- No pack hierarchy.
- Males collect small objects in order to build artful displays in which to attract females with. Couples will perform acrobatic dances togther before breeding.
- Couples are not typically permanent and hatchlings end up raised by the pack as a whole.
- Open spaces are necessary to fit the whole pack as well as give these active dragons room to romp about.
- Set up near the base of a mountain so there is at least one area in which threats will have a harder time sneaking up on packs.
- Sedentary unless it becomes necessary for the pack to uproot such as if food in the area becomes scarce.
- Practice hunting techniques by turning it into a game.
- Males become highly competitive with each other when hunting together, so they usually hunt alone.
- Females form small hunting packs with other dragons from their hatchling brood.
- Prefer sneak attacks.
- Do not like to engage in any fights and will likely abandon any prey that is not taken down with a few sneak attacks.
- Eat large mammals.
- Hatchlings and the elderly eat the remains of hunted animals but are also provided with birds and, if near a body of water, fish.
- Dragons who hunt eat their share of meat first before offering it to the needy in the pack, but will happily hunt more if any dragon does not get their share.
