And look! It has grown wings and the flower is blooming! 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.
True to her name, Huggy loves hugs. She's always trailing off after some other dragon - often her mother, Na'viri - and nuzzling against their shoulders. She can be a bit attention-seeking at times, but the sight of this warm little hatchling curled around another dragon, fast asleep, is undeniably adorable.
