Sometimes this small round egg is soft and wet to the touch, but other times it feels hard and dry.

Myledaphus are shy coastal creatures rarely seen by humans despite their vibrant colors. They reach about a meter long and spend most of the day hiding in the sand, only coming out at night to forage for food. Curiously, the males and females of this species typically inhabit very different environments; males are aquatic and live in warm coastal waters, while females swim through the air over tropical beaches. Both are able to fly and swim in air or water, but each can only breathe in one fluid. Females must hold their breath to dive underwater just as the males must keep their gills moist when they venture into the air. Occasionally a rare individual is both with the ability to pass between the submarine and surface worlds as it pleases, but for most, visits to the other population of myledaphus are brief. The one exception is during a blue moon, when the restrictions on these creatures seem lifted and they actively visit one another like old friends kept separate. Unsurprisingly, the blue moon is the breeding season for these creatures, and because it comes so rarely, myledaphus must live for a very long time. By some estimates, individuals regularly live over a hundred years.
