Stealthy and deliberate, the speckled Galaxite dragon employs an element of surprise. Crescent-shaped horns, curved spikes on the sides of the neck and down the back, along with a double set of tail fins give this species ample defense. But when the wings unfurl, a dizzying wall of starry spots provides a disorienting display that ensures the dragon has the upper hand. This baby, bemused by the night sky, spreads tiny wings to show off a little starfield of its own.
One of The Dragonlings Series, a collection of originally-designed baby dragons based on minerals and semi-precious stones.
