Is this the same dragon?

Postby Crazysockm1 » Tue Sep 15, 2020 10:46 am

So I recently bought a dragon from the morph market and when I received her she looks different from the picture. I've been thinking if there has been a switch up or if he accidentally gave me the wrong one. Can you guys please tell me if these are two different dragons or are the same?

Hard to tell but the head pattern looks similar. It's hard to see the back markings clearly in the morphmarket pictures.

I'd say there is a good chance its the same dragon.

I agree, right now it's probably going in to shed. Babies shed VERY often so they can change from one week to the next. Did the seller have pics of the parents by chance ? That's a nice looking baby.

I would say no. Looking at the spinal markings. But very similar, so same brood maybe? Unless those dark markings change quickly with age, not the exact same dragon.

(edited to say : I think the markings on yours are nicer!)

IMO that's the same dragon, as mentioned with every shed and over time colors can change. In my experience dark markings can tend to fade away, but the reason I think its the same is the lighter v/wishbone shape on the head. I think it would be quite unlikely to have 2 so closely match up. Also different lighting and camera will effect color, and tamps when it was taken will effect how dark some of the dark spots appear.

Not the same dragon, the tail markings are different and there’s one part of the back markings that should be kinda splayed out, but it’s not. You’ll still fall in love with your dragon just the same, though - consider it as it was meant to be 😂

I agree now that I looked more closely. The trail of markings on the back went from simply uneven to open " diamond " shape. The v shape on back of the head lacks a small mark going up the middle.

The breeder may have had 2 dragons or more being shipped the same day and got them mixed up. Actually the one you [ O.P.] got is prettier IMO. :)

Yes, these are the pics I compared. I know markings can change, but surely not within a shed or two.

Also the two markings under that large circle that thin into points. They are a big difference too.

So this will determine if this is the dragon! I bought a girl but it might be a male!
