Swallowtail Dragons were released on March 16, 2011, alongside Pillow Dragons. They are one of the few dragon sprites on site to contain transparency in them, allowing for the wing color to change slightly depending on the background.

Official Dragon DescriptionsEdit


"This egg has a very thin shell."


"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It has two tails!"

Mature HatchlingEdit

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It has two tails!
And look! It's grown its wings! It must be close to maturing."


"Swallowtail dragons are graceful and quick flyers, much like their namesake bird. They are capable of precise aerial acrobatics, and can reach very high altitudes. Because of this, humans observing these dragons are often astonished at how large they are when confronted up close. A Swallowtail's diet consists of insects and small mammals plentiful in temperate forests. These dragons are also made remarkable by their paperthin wing membranes, which allow light to pass through, creating an astonishing effect on starry nights."

The Swallowtails' wings are semi-transparent, so their color depends on the color of the background.
