ECOLOGY

Environment: Any cold land

Organization: Solitary, pair, clutch (2–6), or family (6–8)

Ice drakes are found in cold, mountainous and chasms. Most encounters are with a solitary drake. Only in the winter months is it common to find a mated pair or family. An ice drake’s scales are white, and it is often mistaken for a young white (especially when it chooses to appear as one). Ice drakes range from 3 feet to 6 feet long.
