Pygmy Dragons were released on the 15th of July 2009 alongside Albino, Cheese and Ochredrake dragons. Since their introduction to the cave, they have displayed gender dimorphism. They are common and can only breed with other Pygmies or Pumpkin dragons. Currently Pygmy dragons have no breed specific action.
This Stone egg is the only egg in existence that was born of a mating between a Pygmy and another type of dragon. It was sired by a wild female Pygmy and a wild male Stone. The egg got laid on May 16th-2011. It gains no views or clicks and most certainly will never hatch.
Official Dragon Description Edit
"This egg is so tiny you almost didn't see it."
"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It can fit right in your palm."
"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It can fit right into your palm. And look! It's grown wings! It must be close to maturing."
"Pygmy dragons are the smallest breed of true dragons, being the size of a small cat. They are often found around concentrated populations of dragons, relying on their larger brethren to ward away potential predators, and to leave generous scraps. As such, the majority of a Pygmy's diet is scavenged, though they do hunt songbirds and small mammals when the pickings are slim. Due to their tiny size, pygmies do not breed with other varieties of dragons, but select mates within their breed."

"Pygmies were originally supposed to be about 2 inches long, total. They were nectar-feeders and "often mistaken for large bees" or something like that. TJ asked me the night of the release to rewrite the descriptions, and said they could be "cat sized." When I said "small cat" Singapuras were my basis. However, the stats I have written down are;
Length;Under a foot
Height; ~5 inches from withers to ground
Wingspan; ~2 feet
Weight; 1 KG or less
And clarification on the weight; It's based off of predatory bird weights, rather than mammal weights, because they have hollow bones and whatnot."
