Red dragon hatchling is a type of monster in ADOM. Like their adult counterparts, red dragon hatchlings have a fire breath attack, are immune to fire, and are vulnerable to cold attacks. They can appear relatively early in the game (in such areas as Big Room, for example). Red dragon hatchlings are almost guaranteed to be found in the Tower of Eternal Flames and appear in huge numbers in vaults (lesser or greater) of red dragons. They are able to smash doors and equip some items (mainly armor). They drop a pile of gold when killed, containing around 1000 gold pieces on average.

Monster memory[]

A red dragon hatchling, even only a few weeks old, can still be a threat to a fully mature adventurer. It has only one row of teeth as yet, but they are razor sharp, as are its newly grown claws. Its thin scales glow red and shine with reflected light, and small licks of flame dart between its teeth.
