Dusk Pygmies are a hybrid species released on June 25, 2017, alongside Setsong and Risensong Dragons. They were the first hybrid Pygmy species to be released on Dragon Cave.

Like all pygmies, their eggs cannot be bitten by Vampire Dragons and they can only breed with other pygmies or Pumpkin Dragons.

Official Dragon DescriptionsEdit


"This tiny egg is cold to the touch."


"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It seems to be active around dusk."

Mature HatchlingEdit

"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It seems to be active around dusk.
And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing."


"Dusk Pygmies, as their name may suggest, are crepuscular dragons. When the sun sets, they are most active and are commonly seen darting across the sky, the fading sunlight catching and reflecting off of their wings in brilliant patterns. Living in small, tight-knit groups, these pygmies spend many of their waking hours stretching their wings by fetching food for group members. The young, elderly, disabled, and injured are all diligently and lovingly cared for by all of the group. Though rather intelligent, they are easily distracted. Some Dusk Pygmies are prone to hoarding objects that may distract them; others may return late to their roost late after most of their other group members are already sleeping."

  • This dragon's egg cracking sequence was glitched upon the initial release, seemingly due to the regular hatching sequence's template being used instead of the pygmy version. This resulted in red bumps forming on the egg as it hatched, eventually becoming a triangle in the lower right corner of the sprite.

Additional InformationEdit

Many thanks to Sock for writing the descriptions on these!

I don't have so much extra info for these, but here's what do I have


Dusk Pygmies were not a naturally occurring breed. They were first bred as a designer breed, much like a labradoodle, until some escaped captivity - so now they can also be found in the wild. As such it is considered a status symbol to keep a dusk Pygmy

Dimorphic Differences

As seen with the sprites, females are larger (a trait they get from the Nilia female) and the male has stub horns (by way of the Crimson Flare). Personality wise males tend to be more clingy while it can take longer to earn the females trust. As to why a hybrid of Crimson and Nilia? Why not!? :D


Dusk Pygmies are skilled with magic. Their magic is mostly harmless like creating mirages or levitating objects. They are also great at transforming rocks into gems, a honed skill of the Nilia.


Dusk Pygmies will eat anything and everything. They have a special fondness for fruits and berries.
