Waterhorse Dragons were released on August 25, 2009, alongside Deep Sea, Neotropical, Horse and Water Walker Dragons.

When breeding a Waterhorse with a Lumina Dragon, the Lumina dragon will lose its scales and temporarily change sprites- this is due to the gelatinous goo that a Waterhorse is covered with.

Official Dragon DescriptionsEdit

EggEdit

"This egg is slimy and blue."

HatchlingEdit

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It's kind of shaky on its feet and enjoys playing in puddles."

Mature HatchlingEdit

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It's kind of shaky on its feet and enjoys playing in puddles.
And look! It's grown its wings! It must be close to maturing."

AdultEdit

"Waterhorse dragons received their name due to their horse-like physique and endearing behavior. They are capable of surviving out of water, and when on land their skin secretes a gelatinous goo to retain moisture. However, their large paddle feet are better suited for swimming, and waterhorse dragons tend to move very awkwardly when on land. Waterhorses are very friendly dragons, and enjoy playing with humans."

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • The slime these dragons secrete dries to a tough, rubbery finish when exposed to open air.
  • The larger the crest on the male, the more appealing of a mate he appears to females.
  • Like many other aquatic dragons, waterhorses tolerate both fresh and saltwater well.
  • This breed has unusual dentation, featuring specialized teeth for breaking shellfish.
  • Waterhorses have swim bladders they expand and contract to control their overall buoyancy, similar to fish.
  • The bone structure of their flippers is highly cartilaginous.
  • Fully grown waterhorse dragons have specialized paddle-like wings to allow it to swim gracefully through the sea.
  • Laterally flattened bones act as flat struts across the broad surface of their membranous feet.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Owing to their hooked premolars, teething for young waterhorse dragons is especially painful.
  • Waterhorse hatchlings eat near constantly.
  • They are especially friendly with domestic animals and children.
  • Extremely playful and curious.
  • Playfully chase each other through reefs and shoals.

Adult Behavior

  • Waterhorse dragons have an apparent preoccupation with removing starfish from their territory and tossing them far, far away.
  • Instead of fighting, male waterhorses attempting to draw the attention of mates will strike ever more elaborate poses in hopes of besting their competition.
  • Adults sometimes chase seals aground, and appear to enjoy waddling around after them by land.
  • Adults make a sound that is very laugh-like for various reasons, including expressing happiness.
  • Can be described as “artistic” due to their underwater routines and dances used to attract mates and their affinity for aquascaping.

Habitat

  • Typically, Waterhorses can be found in vegetation and kelp, twining through their gardens and surveying the waters of their homes.
  • Though not advised, it is possible to rear hatchlings in large tubs or basins filled with clean or salty water.

Diet

  • They willingly starve before resorting to eating starfish.
  • Waterhorse dragons have been known to drown and eat crocodiles when in hostile environments.
  • Can be trained (with great pains) to not eat ornamental pond fish in captivity.
