Tri-Horn Wyverns were released into the cave during the "Black Friday Release". At first they were released in the desert biome but got transferred to the alpine biome since these dragons prefer to live in cold areas.
Official Dragon Description
"This brown egg is covered in intricate designs."
"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It’s small, but already likes to play-fight."
"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It’s small, but already likes to play-fight. And look! It has grown spikes! It must be close to maturing."
"Tri-Horn Wyverns are a mountainous species, living in high altitude areas among rocks and snow. The rough and rugged climate has bred a tough and hardened species, prepared to do battle with both the elements and other creatures. Their most distinctive feature is the three-horned crest mounted on their head, for which they were named; these toughened spikes are powerful weapons, used to battle against predators, prey and fellow Tri-Horn Wyverns. Both males and females of this species fight for territory and resources, and wear scars with pride. However, Tri-Horn wyverns have a soft side between their many spikes. They work in loyal packs, of whom they are deeply protective; if one can gain their trust, Tri-Horn wyverns can be powerful allies through the mountains."

Tri-Horn Wyvern Information
So, now that I'm awake, let's post some fun facts!(I’m not sure why they’re in the desert biome right now; though they were created before biomes were implemented, so I never specified. However, as someone previously mentioned, there are cold deserts, and even hot ones can get chilly at night.)
- I based a lot of their behavior off wolves and mountain goats. I just made them a wyvern because I thought it would look cool.
- These dragons tend to live in mountains. Their brown, black and grey scales originally evolved as camouflage for these environments, until they grew large and deadly enough that they could afford the bright blue colouring.
- They live in packs with an average of fifteen members, plus their eggs and hatchlings. Young adults will often leave their pack to either find or establish a new one.
- In size, they’re about a third taller than a fully grown man. So while they’re hardly the largest species in the dragon cave universe, I really wouldn’t want to get one on my bad side, especially if they had their pack with them.
- In size, shape and behavior, there’s very little sexual dimorphism for this breed. Females do tend to take care of the young more- a difficult task. They must not only feed them and keep them from getting hurt, but train them in flying, hunting and fighting. Males tend to patrol the perimeter while this is going on, though occasionally individuals will do the roles of their opposite sex.
- Hatchlings begin training from almost the moment they leave their egg. One of the most popular games is “catch mommy’s tail”, which at first consists of mom dangling it in front of their mouths while the hatchy ineffectually tries to catch it. When they’re older it becomes more of a game of tag. Once the hatchling actually manages to catch the tail, they are moved onto live prey, usually something like a practice hare.
- Both males and females compete with one-another for the right to mate, though the males slightly more. This rarely becomes life threatening, however. The fights tend to be a lot of roaring, posturing and clashing of their horns, which evolved primarily for their purpose. While the species relishes fighting, they’re also very pragmatic. They know that if they injure another pack member by in-fighting, they’ll be weaker if they come against an outside threat, so the “fighting” is more like “really scary dance-offs”.
- Trihorn Wyverns are adapted for endurance. They live in more extreme environments, and so are very good at conserving energy for the long run. When hunting, they try to wear their prey out, chasing after it for long periods of time until it is too exhausted to escape or fight back.
- They are almost entirely carnivorous, though they may eat berries or the like if they get really desperate. It doesn't happen often, however.
- They tend to be rather serious and practical, and look down on anybody (or any species) that is too laid back or joking.
