The Cadw Dragon family

The father of the family is Dewi — the black-and-red beast that originally found fame after breaking the banks of Caerphilly Castle in 2016.

The mum is Dwynwen — the beautiful Caernarfon Dragon who gleams with pearlescent purple scales.

And the two babies — Dylan and Cariad — are the animatronic offspring of the two Cadw Dragons, known for being adorable but VERY mischievous.
