Aww... It’s a cute baby drake. It’s mostly white but has a blue stripe down its back.
And look! It has grown antlers! It must be close to maturing.
Young drakes 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.
