Ridgeback Dragons by neondragon Ridgeback Dragons by neondragon
Snippet:
The easy-going Ridgeback dragon is covered long spines. These dragons live in small family groups that they will spend the rest of their lives with. Ridgeback dragons rarely venture out into the world. On the rare occasions when they encounter a stranger, they will try their best to be friendly, inviting individual to stop and fish. The freshness of the fish may be a question worth asking.

Diet:
Ridgeback dragons are excellent fishers and eat seafood type food items. They're not adverse to fish that's been sitting around the lair for a day or ten: The aging just adds a little bit of extra kick!

Physical Attributes:
The ridgeback dragon is a very large, tall dragon. They have spikes running down the length of their body and limbs, and males have a large forward-facing horn that continues to grow their entire life.

Huh, kinda interesting that there's two babbos there. Was FR originally going to have the hatchlings have different art depending on the genders?

I was pretty sure that I had previously bought a book filled with this person's art and the fact that they drew these guys and these same dragons (image and everything) are in the book I'm most defiantly sure I bought a book of their art work.

Honestly with the images with two gendered babies, it seems like the unused drawing is by someone less skilled. Something about the shapes of them don't seem quite right, like a different person drew them in after the fact.

I wish the hatchlings could've stayed separate for design-the male is too cute!

Yeah; no one has any love for the goblin/pointy-nosed anymore. :C
It'll be ok though, I'll hoard 'em all away and keep them to myself.

Magnificent species, I love their crazy faces! And those spikes - intimidating!

I have a few questions, though. How do they go about fishing? Do these dragons actually go bare-handed, spear them with their spikes, use a net, etc? And what sort of home would they have?
Reply
:iconneondragon:
neondragon Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012
Their home would depend on which of the elemental flights you join. :) Gameplay-wise, you go fishing the same way no matter what dragons you have in your flight. Lore-wise, I they'd probably fish from the surface, with their claws. This could be accomplished by standing very still, then striking, or coming at a school of fish from above and snatching one out of the water.

Mmm, okay! Thank you!

What sort of den would something of the nature area variety be like? I'm sorry for pestering you with questions like this! I've got some inklings of ideas, but I want to be as accurate as possible. XD

neondragon Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2012
If you check out "The Viridian Labyrinth" map in our locations section, you can see the territory that the nature dragons call home. Their dens can be on the ground in a traditional cave-type set-up, but they would likely be covered in plantlife. Nature dragons enjoy cultivation. A nature lair could also be dug out among the roots and hollows of some of the larger trees. They grow pretty big the closer you get to the center of the forest. :-)
