Maple Cervus were an event dragon released from 26th to 30th October, 2013 to commemorate Thanksgiving.
This egg is covered with leaves.
With a creak and a crack, the egg pops open! The small, hoofed hatchling is unsteady as well as jumpy, starting at every little noise.
This young hatchling has grown surefooted and fast and its days of being frightened are over. It is confident and assertive and appears to be growing a single, large antler.
Maple Cervus dragons appear in numbers during the harvest season, returning from their long retreat into the more impassable areas of the forests. Their colors blend with the leaves, giving them good camouflage, and they are fleet of foot, making them difficult to capture. Male and female adults sport a single bone antler growing from their foreheads. Males use them to intimidate other males and to show off for females while the females use them to defend their young. Cervus are notoriously bad parents; young are almost always forgotten or abandoned by their first month. As a result, they grow quite fast.
