Daggerclaws are small dragons found on various islands in Dracosei.

Basic Information

Anatomy

Daggerclaws are small dragons with a distinct yellow and brown colouring. They stand on 2 legs, with 2 claws on each foot. Its one pair of wings have a large claw on it used for climbing. There is a row of orange spikes along its neck and back, and one single orange barb on its tail. Its head has a long jaw, its eyes sitting on the end of its snout. There are two egg teeth on the front of its snout used to break into eggs and eat the insides.

Genetics and Reproduction

Daggerclaws lay eggs between July and August in large colonies. They nest in holes in the ground they dig out. The eggs are bright yellow with a brown pattern streaking down. Two small stubs stick out the top and bottom.   Baby daggerclaws are about 3 inches long. They must fend for themselves as soon as they are born, and learn to fly and hunt.
