Hey peoples!  Random question here: Do any of you know off the top of your head if dragons molt?  Like, are there any canon facts about it?  It would be useful to know this for something I'm writing, and I'm too lazy to go into extensive research XD

This is a tidal class dragon that I created, called the Siren Song.  It has gills for breathing underwater, but can still survive above water for short periods of time.  The only time these dragons are seen out of the water is when it pulls itself out of the sea with its two legs to catch prey.  It lures it's victims in by flashing the bulb at the end of its antenna in a pattern that is mesmerizing to dragons.  Any unfortunate dragon who sees this blinking light will be drawn towards it.  As soon as it's prey is in sight, the Siren Song will then snag the dragon in its long, nimble tail, and drag it down into the sea.  Once in the water, the Siren Song either drowns its victim, squeezes it to death with it's tail, or injects its paralyzing venom and eats the dragon alive.  Overall, it's kinda like the tidal version of a Death Song.

Wiggles the whispering d.eath ate my subject

At least a few species are known to molt in some way. Larg chunks of dropped changewing skin was used in an episode of the show and apparently it holds its cloaking propertys for a while. Large amounts of Screaming d.eath scales were used to make armor for Toothless in another. Said scales were simply picked up from the ground of the cave in which the dragon lived (with his whispering d.eath momma preventing him from eatting Hiccup and friends).

In the first movie Hiccup finds some of Toothless' scales while tracking him though given his injurys it's unknown if those are shed or are the result of the injurys.

In the third movie the gang are wearing fireproof flightsuits made with their own dragon's shed scales as the fireproofing.

Welp

Well, yes dragons do indeed molt. In HTTYD 3, the Dragon Rider's dragon armor is made out of dragon scales, proof that their dragons molted. Also.. dragons have scales so I would very much assume they do molt xD

And although it might not be HTTYD, in another episode in Resue Riders, someone did say dragons 'molt'. So i think thats some proof to you... (tho its not HTTYD of course...)

 

P.S: :D  I have thy awoken from my slumber
