Dragon Cave Wiki

Yulebucks, or Holiday 2008 Dragons, were the all-male limited release species given out during the Holiday season of 2008. They are only capable of producing more Yulebuck eggs during a certain period when Christmas is celebrated in December. They can still be bred to all year round, producing the female's breed of egg. Each scroll is currently limited to 2 CBs of this breed, like all other Holiday dragons.

In the past, this breed was limited to 2 per scroll/account, whether bred or CB. Any other Yulebuck eggs that were obtained were automatically abandoned if picked up in the abandoned page or main cave, and after 30 minutes if bred. The Yulebuck originally didn't have a Spriter's Alt variation, but in 2013 they, along with many other Holiday dragons, received them.

Under the old Breed sort, these dragons sorted as "Christmas 2008 Dragon" on a user's scroll. As of August 14, 2016, they now sort using their Encyclopedia name of "Holiday Dragon (2008)".

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


Holiday dragons are a very mysterious breed. They are only seen during winter, and even then it is hard to catch a glimpse of one. They are responsible for the general cheer that spreads during the holidays. In essence, they are the “Spirits of Winter.”
