This article is about an older version of DF.
A gigantic monster, once a dragon, now adapted to and polluted by the underground. Its wings fall limp at its side. Its face is full of incredibly long teeth. Its eyes are large to penetrate the darkness.

Cave dragons are gigantic beasts which were once dragons who have adapted to life underground. Unlike their above-ground brethren, they do not breathe fire, but they do appear to be immune to the effects of fire. Happily, they are not immune to the effects of a dwarf's best friend. They have wings (which lack the ability to fly) and white scales, but besides this are not nearly as dangerous as their above ground cousins (due to being smaller and not breathing fire). Oddly, despite their description, regular dragons do not have wings, much less functional ones, though cave dragons do.

Cave dragons are incredibly rare in the underground, but can be also be ridden as a war mount by goblins, which may be a lot more fun that you can handle. Cave dragons lay eggs, but do not breed, lacking a child token.

Cave dragons are among the largest creatures in the game, and grow into their adult size of 15,000,000 after 1000 years. The butchery values in the right-hand column assume that an adult is being butchered: worlds younger than 1000 years will only have juvenile cave dragons, which drop far less meat.

Cave dragons are building destroyers which means, among other things, that doors are useless as defense. The may also be used as mounts during a siege.

Cave dragons provide the insanely wonderful pet value of 10,000 and are very good war animals, due to high natural fighting skills and sheer size.
