A fully grown spiked cazaui stands roughly 9 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. Spiked cazaui use their neck spikes to warn off predators with loud rattles, and these spikes can also be used as protection if the rattling doesn't work. They're unable to be ridden, but will pull heavy loads as long as they get treats at the end of the work.

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. Spiked cazaui live on the edges of deserts and other arid lands, 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. Less vegetation means they've adapted to eating almost everything the desert has to offer, including cacti, spikes and all. Some magi believe that eating this cacti helps the spiked cazaui grow and maintain its own spikes, and those keeping a spiked cazaui ensure they have a steady supply of cacti on hand.
