Common Pygmies are sweet in temperament and palate. They spend a fair amount of time foraging for and scavenging food but have a particular fondness for sweet tasting treats, such as honey. When pickings are slim, they can hunt songbirds and small mammals. Common Pygmies stay in large groups, migrating alongside their food supply. Although capable of the same basic vocal sounds of most other dragons, Common Pygmies prefer to communicate through body language. It is perhaps no surprise, then, that Common Pygmy hatchlings are rather affectionate.
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.
Pride sat down in the sun-kissed sand. She became puzzled as she watched the waves, for a question had arisen in her mind. Pride observed that the waves start out small, and grow with the current. Knowing this made her wonder why she had not grown. She knew she was adopted by her parents, and that she would never look the same as her siblings, but one thing was not completely clear: Why she was so small. She trotted away from the kelp bed, and over to a small tide pool. She was a very observant dragon, and was fascinated with every part of life. She licked her paws as a cat would, and that was when she saw something very peculiar. Among the rocks in the tidal pool, swam a Kemp's Ridley turtle. She was a very intelligent dragon, knowing that this was the world's smallest saltwater turtle. She smiled at the turtle, and how it seemed to thrive, even with its weaknesses, and realized, that she can too.
