Welcome to Dragon Cave! Dragon Cave is an online adoptables game. Collect eggs, raise them to adulthood, and then breed them to create interesting lineages. New dragons are added regularly!
Nilia Pygmies reside mostly in mountainous regions, tending to live in large flocks. They are a curious, hyperactive breed; their curiosity often gets them into dangerous situations. Despite this, they are wary around other dragons and animals outside their breed. They are naturally shy and seek their own kind for companionship. Once the trust of a Nilia dragon is earned, they are highly loyal critters, sometimes to the point of being annoying.
Dragons are highly-intelligent reptilian creatures that—from a human perspective, at least—appear to live forever. Many different varieties of dragon exist, each with their own unique qualities, habitats, and behavior. Adolescence in dragons 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. In Galsreim, dragons and humans coexist peacefully.
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.
This is a typical nilia pygmy dragon who got into a spot of trouble with a hawk one day. Trying to escape from the predator bird, he darted past a large harvest dragon hatchling. When the hatchling saw what was going on, she snapped her head forward and ate the hawk in one big gulp.
This dragon was very grateful to have been rescued from the hawk. He flew back to the hatchling and thanked her. The large hatchling grunted and kept foraging for food. The little dragon, however, gave his undying loyalty to his savior from that moment on.
Now the hatchling is subject to constant attention from this small creature. He likes to play games with her, such as land on her nose, cry telepathically "Tag! You're IT!" and dart back into the trees. Luckily for the little flier, she does not eat sentient creatures—though sometimes she contemplates whether an annoying nilia pygmy dragon would be nicer in her belly than on her back.
