Ice drakes are found in cold mountainous caves and caverns. 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 dragon. Ice drakes range from 3 feet to 6 feet long.
