Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It gives off a glow that lights up the cave.
Look, it’s grown frills, and the glow around it has become even brighter.
Young dragons are relatively defenseless. They are born with relatively soft scales, which are shed and replaced with harder ones as the hatchling matures. Once a hatchling’s wings grow in, it marks the beginning of maturation. At this point they are often capable of hunting on their own and are usually left alone by their mother.
