Tarantula Hawk Drake were released on May 21, 2016, alongside Nexus and Candelabra Dragons as well as Morphodrakes, as part of Dragon Cave's 10th Birthday release. Just like other DC Drakes, they can only breed with other Drakes and their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons.

Under the old Legacy Breed sort, these dragons sorted as "thawk" on a user's scroll.[1] As of August 14, 2016, they now sort using their Encyclopedia name.

Official Dragon DescriptionsEdit


"A delicate web-like pattern decorates this egg’s shell."


"Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It likes to be left alone."

Mature HatchlingEdit

"Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It likes to be left alone.
And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing."


"The quiet and solitary Tarantula Hawk Drake lives in deserts, digging temporary shallow nests overnight in which to sleep. They feed primarily on large spiders, but will also eat carrion, other insects, and larger prey when necessary. Tarantula Hawk Drakes are typically quite docile, preferring to mind their own business. However, when threatened or provoked, these drakes will attempt to stab the opponent with the stinger on their tail to inject a powerful venom. This sting is at the very least extremely painful, and even if the toxins don’t paralyze the attacker, the pain is likely to distract them enough for the drake to escape."
