Lovely Verinia is a High Current dragonling, a sub-species of air dragons that are long-lived, slow to grow and have the largest wingspan of any species. On average, most dragons reach maturity around 50 years or so, but High Current dragons take almost two hundred years to grow to their fullest potential; which just means that they'll stay small for a long time before growth spurts begin to catch up with them. High Currents are understandably usually a wild species, but there are a few domestic lines in the dragonarium. For the most part, the domestic dragons on record belong to wealthy and well-established families. We're not entirely sure if Verinia comes from one of these lines or if something else happened; the man who brought her to us said he was traveling through the countryside with his wagon loaded down for market when he caught sight of her gliding down toward him. She landed on the wagon, gave a happy cry and settled in for a nap.
Despite her young age, her wings are in fact already quite strong, so she needs plenty of space to fly safely; being small she's still in danger of being viewed as food by larger avians. Her sweet disposition and I'm-up-for-anything grin steals hearts though, so watch out!
Each dragon hatchling comes with an adoption certificate!
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.
