It's unusual to have Cute Newts hatching so late in the season - their smaller size and preference for warmer temperatures means that they usually hatch in spring and summer, with wild specimens migrating to avoid the coldest climes. Fortunately for Adra, she hatched in our care so has had no need of those instincts - when she's cold, there's always a heat lamp inside going and when she feels energetic enough to adventure there's the entire Aviary complex and even the backyard available to her.
As with all Newts, she's a flightless species that behaves a lot like lizards - scurrying around and wiggling into tiny places their cousins with wings would never be able to reach. Raising Newts is in theory easier than winged dragons and they often do very well in pairs of three or more, but they are still a mythical species of dragon and should be handled with all the awe and care they deserve. Talk to one of our specialists to find out some of the more unique ways to keep a Cute Newt entertained!
Each dragon hatchling comes with an adoption certificate and a handful of dragon treats!
Care of Dragonlings
Your Aviary original sculpture is a completed piece - cured and glazed where normal handling might wear off paint to ensure a long life. Please do not get your hatchling wet as water can make the varnish over the eyes sticky; likewise, please do not expose your dragon to extreme temperatures. Handle with care - these are NOT suitable for play by small children.
*All boxes ship with tracking!* PLEASE NOTE our new shipping window is 3-5 days after purchase. If you need your dragon shipped with haste drop us a message and we'll do our best to accommodate. Please be aware too that domestic shipping is still somewhat chaotic due to COVID-19 so some packages may also be a little slower to arrive than in the past.
