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.

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!

I wish they'd use the alternate baby image for the females!  It looks shy yet vicious.
