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.
Silverspirit is arya10's oldest tinsel dragon. To other dragons, she seems snooty, but honestly, it's because she doesn't know how to talk to dragons other than tinsels and her mate Prince Gumball, who she somehow understands his fast speech. She wishes she knew what to do, but she doesn't know how to ask.
