Bunny dragons are often dragons with rabbity influences. However, there are changes from the norm that are seen. This is a list of them and their frequency. As often as not, these are products of random chance. Other influences include genetic lines (Hends have statistically more mutations passed to offspring than any other color), bondmate influences, and environmental factors.
Genetic Variances - Not really mutations, just possibilties that are less frequent than those of the 'standard' for these dragons. They neither help nor hinder the dragons in any way. They are ingrained in the dragons' genes once they appear, and there is little outside influence can do to affect this.
Skin-covered talons - These are talons that have not fully emerged from the skin on the dragons' paws. They are just as sharp (often moreso) as standard talons. Frequency: 2
Talonless paws - These dragons lack talons of any type. This is very rarely heard of, and the dragons in question seem to be more gentle than others. Frequency: 5
Half-and-Half talons - These dragons have two different types of talons - skin-covered and regular, or some other combination, making their fore- and hind-feet different. Frequency: 3
Sawtooth dragons - These dragons have a jagged, saw-like jawline to their beaks. They look frightening, but they don't behave any differently than their smooth-jawed relatives. Frequency: 3
Nose horns - The egg-tooth the dragon had to help peck its way out of the shell has staid and ossified into a bone. Occasionally, these horns will develop into huge rhino-like structures. Just as often, the horn will dissolve or fall off at a later stage in the dragon's life. Frequency: 3
Lop ears - These dragons, obviously, have floppy ears instead of the long, erect ears they usually sport. They hearing is still very good, though not as good as that of the normal dragon. Frequency: 3
Wildlife markings - These dragons have a slightly more feline appearance than the normal dragon, and their fur is marked with spots or stripes, often mimicking native or foreign species. This serves sometimes as camoflauge, sometimes not, depending on the extensiveness of the markings. Frequency: 2
Crystalline fur - These dragons have what at first glance looks like very coarse, iridescent fur. In fact, this fur is more akin to dragon scales or bird feathers than fur. It is coarse, iridescent, and stiff, though not as such to pose a hazard to anyone or anything. It is often stiff enough to deflect blows, however, and protects dragons who are lucky enough to have this kind of fur. Frequency: 1
Spontaneous Mutations - These are the mutations that occur after the dragon has been conceived and the egg has been laid. They are random in occurance, and often have neither beneficial nor detrimental effects on their lives.
Lighter coloration - These dragons have a lighter shade than typical of their coloration. They are frequently more upbeat and cheerful than even the standard dragon of this color. Dragons who have the main color of grey do not achieve this mutation, due to the very nature of greys being sociable and upbeat to begin with. Frequency: 1
Definite Shape Markings - This mutation occurs only in the rare colorations. Their spots and color blendings are definitely in the form of recognizeable shapes, whether they're flowers, animals, foods, or countries. They have a primary color, and all the explosions of color are expressed in the form of this shape, whatever it is. If a dragon has color explosions, but only one is in the form of a recongizeable shape, this is random happenstance, and not a deviation. Frequency: 1
Feathered wings - These dragons have, instead of draconic wings, feathered wings like birds. They fly just as well as those with draconic wings, though they are likely to lose the feathers if they become seabourne types as adults. Frequency: 2
Fae wings - These dragons have a set (or more, sometimes) of wings like fairies. Some are unable to fly with these, some are quite capable of flight when they're old enough. It depends on their type and the strength and size of their wings. Frequency: 2
Angora fur - These dragons have very long, very soft fur all over their bodies. Frequency: 2
Mane - These dragons have a ring of long fur around their necks. This often begins to manifest early, though may develop later as the dragon matures. It is more frequently seen on males than females. Frequency: 2
Fur ruff - These dragons wear a collar of fur across their shoulders and tapering down to their chests. This is often colored in their secondary coloration, and is not the same thing as a mane. It is more frequently seen on females than males. Frequency: 1
Fetlocks - These dragons have long hair from their ankles down, covering their feet. Frequency: 2
Razorback - These dragons have a long line of fur from the crown of their heads down their backs for some length. These are frequently Colwallander-colored dragons, though this has been seen elsewhere. Frequency: 1
Spaded tail - These dragons have a long, whip-like tail ending in a heart, or spade-shaped wedge of flesh. This tail is capable of grabbing things and holding on tight, as well as snapping out in aggression. Frequency: 1
Cat tail - These dragons have a heavy, lengthened tail covered in fur. They use it for balance and stability more than anything else. Often times it will not have the white under-coloring like the standard BD tail. Frequency: 1
Opposeable thumbs - These dragons have opposeable thumbs, and are able to open doors and hold things in their paws without barrelling along clumsily. Frequency: 2
Split ears - The ears of this dragon are obviously separated by a long vertical slit that goes to about half the ear's length. This does not affect the dragon's hearing for good or ill, and appears to be only ornamental. Frequency: 1
Early Type Influences - These are mutations that occur early in a dragon's life and are similar to the mutations a dragon gets when it grows into an adult. They are influences from the environment working on the dragon through its very small amounts of magic, which are stronger while it is still an egg.
Webbed feet - These dragons are excellent swimmers. They will likely be seabourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Cloven hooves - These dragons have hooves, for climbing mountains and traversing steep inclines and rocky patches of land. They are likely to be earthbourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Stunted ears - These dragons have smaller ears than usual. They will likely be seabourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Horns - These dragons have horns, like a goat or similar animal. Because goats are not flying things or swimming things, they are more likely to be earthbourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Stunted wings - These dragons have smaller wings than usual and will likely never fly. They will likely be seabourne or earthbourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Wingless - These dragons have no wings. They will likely be earthbourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 2
Membraneless wings - These dragons have the bones of their wings, but not the membranes to fill them. The wings look like spiders' legs, though they operate with the same syncopation as wings. Dragons with this mutation are often earthbourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Extra-large wings - These dragons have extra-large wings upon hatching. They are likely to be able to fly for a few moments with them, but they'll tire easilly. Dragons with this mutation are often airbourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Extra set(s) of wings - These dragons have two or more extra sets of wings on their backs. Whether or not these extra sets are functional or not varies from dragon to dragon. Dragons with this mutation are often airbourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Draconic tail - These dragons have an elongated tail for balance and steering in the air. While many BDs can fly without a tail, these will become very adept fliers, capable of aerobatic stunts and other fun things. Dragons with this mutation are often airbourne when they are fully grown. Frequency: 1
Disabilities - These mutations are what often happens when a dragon has a pair of Hend-colored parents or is born a twin. They have mutations that have claimed some portion of them, and this mutation is invariably Hend-colored. These are the only dragons with three colorations, and they often develop coping mechanisms and a strong will to deal with the more life-affecting mutations.
Blindness - These dragons have both eyes, but can not see out of one or neither. The eye in question is indigo and milky, pupilless and whiteless. Frequency: 1
Deafness - These dragons have both ears, but cannot hear out of one or neither. The ear in question may be crippled or apparantly fine but painted with the Hend colors. Frequency: 1
Eyeless - These dragons are missing one or both of their eyes. Sometimes skin grows over their sockets, though more often only empty pits remain. Glass eyes are often fit for these dragons, so they can at least look normal, if not be normal in actual fact. Frequency: 1
Parasitic twins - These dragons have multiple limbs or facial features that are not the usual number. The fully-formed dragon is frequently able to control the limbs and features of the parasitic twin. Nasal and Oral passages that the parasitic twin has developed are very frequently non-functional. Frequency: 1
Crippled wing(s) - These dragons have one or more wings crippled in such a way that they will never be able to be used to achieve flight. These dragons are almost never Airborne, but there are exceptions. This crippling does not affect any other functioning part of the body. Frequncy: 1
