Dragons are creatures with nearly unlimited life spans. They can survive for long periods of time, and no one has found a dragon that has died of old age. Adolescence is usually marked by the growth of a hatchling’s wings, although not all breeds of dragons grow wings and some breeds have other traits that indicate the beginning of maturation. Once they hit adolescence, hatchlings change quickly, maturing to their full forms in only 2 years.
Dragons don’t communicate with each other verbally, but they will growl to scare off predators and frighten prey. Young dragons will emit an extremely high-pitched squeal when they are frightened. To communicate, they use telepathy with each other and to speak to other creatures.
The Gold Comes feels like the most privileged dragon on her master's scroll. And she should be! After all she was the first Gold Tinsel, indeed the first Tinsel altogether that her master owned. Gold is hoping that she won't be the only one for too much longer though and was very happy to find a Silver egg near here a few moments after she arrived. Gold just hopes that she can stay focused on being a good example to the other dragons by not being too occupied with being the "best" dragon on the scroll.
