Frilled Cazaui #930

General

Cazaui are generally friendly to anyone or anything that isn't noticeably a threat, but are still alert for danger and quite adept at protecting themselves and their family. Frilled cazaui live within jungles, where the female's colouring blends in when she needs to lay eggs or protect a nest. The male's much brighter colouring is thought to be both a threat display and a distraction, leading predators to chase him instead of discovering the female. Living in an area with more abundant vegetation has led the frilled cazaui to grow larger on average than its spiked cousin. When in an area where frilled cazaui live, magi have reported beautiful serenades whistled at dusk and dawn, thought to be a way to say good night and then to greet the sun.

Egg

This multicoloured egg whistles when approached.

Hatchling

Cazaui hatchlings are surprisingly large given their egg size; wrapped tightly within the shell, they often need a day or two to completely stretch out and unkink themselves. Once upright, hatchlings immediately start looking for food in order to begin growing, and should be kept away from Keep gardens so they don't strip the vegetation to the ground. Frilled cazaui begin to whistle even within their eggs and continue it all through their lives, each cazaui identifiable by their unique sequence of notes.

Adult

A fully grown frilled cazaui stands roughly 12 feet at the shoulder, with a thick body and a relatively short neck. Their size means they spend most of their day feeding, which they do at a deceptively slow pace. Adult cazaui are capable of surprising bursts of speed when frightened, threatened, or in a mood to play. Frilled cazaui are often more aggressive than their spiked cousins, leading to fights - both serious and in play - where they use their powerful necks against each other like battering rams. They're unable to be ridden, but will pull heavy loads as long as they get treats at the end of the work.
