Dragon Habitats

Dragon Habitats

Draconus arcticus once lived in the Arctic tundra biome. The Arctic tundra is a very cold, windy, and treeless habitat that's snow-covered for much of the year. However, there are many places that dragons can go to make their nests.

Ice Caves

Ice caves are formed when meltwater runs under or through a glacier, melting the ice and leaving behind a cavern or passageways within the glacier.

They vary in color, from crystal clear ice which light can pass through easily, to more unexpected colors such as turquoise and azure.

Ice caves can provide temporary shelter for months at a time.

 Permafrost Nests

Permafrost is ground that is at or below 0°C for two years or more. In some areas, the ground has been frozen for tens of thousands of years.

In some places with permafrost, the top layer of the ground thaws during the summer, but the water does not drain away. These wet areas are too marshy for proper dragon nests.

As global temperatures start to rise, the frozen earth has started to thaw at a more rapid rate, making the ground unstable. Dragon nests are then susceptible to landslides.


Rock crevices and caves are also used as dens, and these can remain useable for centuries, but usually not by the same dragon and usually not in successive years. 

Dens are also dug into hillsides or under the root system of a tree. These dens may be dug during the summer months, long before they are needed. Dug dens often collapse after use and therefore are seldom reused.
