Two Dark Dragonologists flee an ill-advised attempt to steal a European Dragon egg.

Dragons' eggs vary enormously in size, color, and shape. The largest belongs to the Wyvern, the smallest to the Dwarf. Some are round as opposed to egg-shaped and most need to be incubated at temperatures of more than 100 degrees and take many months to hatch (except for Frost Dragon eggs which need to be kept very cold to hatch). Never, under any circumstances, should you remove an egg from its nest unless it is in imminent danger. You are likely to land you in hot water if you you do so (especially if you are dealing with a Japanese ryu).

Eggs of different species[]

European: Mottled brown or purple, often with blue spots or swirls, becoming darker towards the end of the incubation period. Eggs can be kept warm with a charcoal brazier but that must be kept in a well-ventilated location.

Frost Dragon Egg

Knucker: Various shades of green, usually with a good coating of mud, which provides camouflage and, therefore, added protection. They may be kept warm on top of an ordinary stove.

Gargouille: Mottled grey-blue with knobby surface and can be dropped from a great height with no visible ill effects.

Frost: White or blue with silver markings; two eggs per clutch; mother uses her frosty breath to incubate them at a temperature well below freezing.

Dwarf: Similar to a bantam's egg, but brilliant red; many hundreds are laid together in a so-called hive.

Wyvern: Very large with a thick, knobby shell; white at first, but gradually changes colour to match surroundings; laid singly amongst dunes and incubated by heat of the sun.
