Sunstone Dragons were released on July 18, 2011, alongside Moonstone Dragons in a release called "Desert Sands". Like the Moonstone dragons, they are one of the first two dragon species that were released into specific Habitats. They also share the same egg description and habitat as Moonstone dragons.

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


Sunstone Dragons are named after the orb on their tails, which resembles the gem of the same name. Their social structure resembles a lion pride, with one dominant male and several females banded together with their young. They prefer arid climates where they can blend in and dig for minerals and gemstones that they not only collect, but eat. The more gems they consume, the larger their tail stone grows. They are an aggressive breed; it is not uncommon to see two males battling for mates and territory.

  • The original idea for a sun and moon stone-based dragon came from a different user posting the suggestion on the forum. By the time anyone came to to work on the idea, the original user had long since left DC, and the topic was split into the two different dragons; Sunstone and Moonstone.
