Cavern Lurker Dragons, also known as Halloween 2012 Dragons (by scroll sort), were released on November 3, 2012 without a limit of their number per scroll.
The 2012 Halloween drop was pushed back to 3rd of November because Hurricane Sandy severely affected the east coast of North America. TJ09 wanted players in the storm area to be able to catch the new eggs too.
As a reminder of the postponed Halloween drop (normally 31st of Oct), TJ09 gave his dragons the codes "Hurcn", "Sandy", and "Delay", which spell out: "Hurricane Sandy Delay".
When sorted by "Breed", Cavern Lurkers are listed as "Halloween 2012 dragon" on a user's scroll.
Official Dragon Description
"This egg is wedged in a dark corner."
"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It hides in dark spaces and lunges at anything that gets too close. Small piles of bones are accumulating outside of its “lairs”..."

"Cavern Lurker dragons are nocturnal ambush predators. Although small, they are very aggressive and will attack anything weak enough to be overpowered. Their preferred method of hunting is to lie in wait in a cave, burrow, or other small, enclosed space; when any potential prey passes they will lunge out to grab hold of the unsuspecting victim and drag it back into the lair. Cavern Lurkers have an odd aversion to sunlight and almost never venture out during the day. More commonly sighted are the odd piles of bones they stack near the entrance to their dens. Their mating call is a low-pitched bumping noise."

Additional InformationAccording to what JOTB said in this post,
They're based off the idea of the boogeyman, things that go bump in the night, monsters in your closet, etc. Adults get to be about the size of a small horse, so unfortunately they're a bit too big to fit under your bed. They're usually foul-tempered and often have bad breath.
