And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.
Young dragons 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 and are usually left alone by their mother.
RmYEO is a young male hatchling who tends to be on the more defensive side of his breed. He is very wary of strangers, including his caretaker which has quite a few marks from a few of his frightened attacks. He tends to explore on his own, avoiding interactions with other hatchlings.
