Dark Myst Pygmies are, despite their dark and gloomy appearance, merry creatures that are usually seen in dark swamps playing among tree branches. These small dragons love humidity, as it keeps their skin well-hydrated, and are most happy when it is raining or foggy. They feed off larvae and insects and occasionally hunt for tiny lizards and frogs.
Pygmy dragons are the smallest category of dragons, being on the same scale as domesticated animals. They are often found around concentrated populations of dragons, relying on their larger brethren to ward away potential predators and leave scraps. As such, the majority of a pygmy’s diet is scavenged. Due to their tiny size, pygmies do not breed with larger varieties of dragons.
A dragon with a keen love of salamanders, this tiny dragon can often be seen on the night after a good rainstorm, going about picking up the tiny creatures and carrying them back into the woodlands and streams from which they came, saving them from being squished by the careless feet of passerby. Some wonder if her empathy for the slimy critter's plight is due to her nearly getting stepped on herself in the past.
