Baby, Under 14 years *
Teen, Under 30 years
Adult, 30+ ¤
Elder, 1000+ ±
Avg Lifespawn ??

* On reaching the age of 14 the hatchling's body undergoes a sudden spurt of growth. Over the next two weeks the dragon's size and girth changes till they more closely resemble their adult form. Still the slightly larger than a pony they are far from full size. It's also during this two week period that they deal with a ravenous hunger forcing them to eat dozens of times their own body mass in food to fuel this growth. Afterward they continue to grow at an albeit reduced rate till they reach their adult size at 30 years of age.

¤ After reaching 100 years of age an adult dragon will begin to take long sleeps ranging from 10-100 years in length. Unable to control the length of this sleep the dragon will feel compelled to rest every 50-100 years. For this reason they often take precautions on where they'll sleep, forcing themselves to fight the fatigue at first. Yet if the dragon continues to fight this effect they will eventually pass out where ever they maybe. It's also during these times of sleep that the dragon will continue to grow.

± Elder Dragons no longer grow or enter the long sleep periods they did as adults.
