Ocean Maladar #1163

General

What maladar lack in size they make up for in bravado. Maladar seem convinced that they're dragons and will happily stare down real dragons, even ones that could eat them in one bite. Eating them isn't advisable, however; ocean maladar are able to squirt toxin at predators, and jungle maladar are simply covered in a poisonous mucous. Both maladar species are able to detach their tails at will to distract predators, and also live in large family groups so that there is always an adult or two to watch for naïve predators.

Egg

This finned egg is slightly damp and smells of salt.

Hatchling

Hatchling ocean maladar have endless energy and do best when in a large family group with other hatchlings. Maladar have the ability to regrow body parts and hatchlings often don't understand that this doesn't usually apply to other species, so it's best to keep them separated from anything that doesn't want to lose a limb. Magi who raise them regularly become used to finding random body parts strewn about, but it's still recommended to give hatchling maladar plenty of toys they can pull apart instead of their siblings.

Adult

A common sight in and along the shallows waters of the Candle Archipelagos and inland around the Waterfalls of Dorr, adult ocean maladar and their families spend most of their time sunning and playing in the water. They tolerate other species - including magi - being nearby, but if approached will become aggressive and threatening. Adults raised by magi are less aggressive but can get very sulky if they perceive disrespect. Some claim that mixing ocean maladar toxin into food or drink can help repair injuries, or even regrow lost limbs, but this isn't recommended as it can cause extreme stomach upset, rashes, and aggression.
