Wallatrice are named for their call, a drawn-out 'waa-laa, waa-laa' most often heard during the crisp autumn nights when they're most active. This noise is quite high and almost sweet, which means magi are often surprised to follow it and meet its large, brightly-coloured, aggressive owner. Wallatrice will fight just about anything, aided by their venomous spines and their ability to sweat poison down their legs to coat their sharp talons. Females are duller than their male counterparts to help aid in the protection of their nests, but as both parents are highly involved with their hatchlings, predators usually spot the male's bright colours and know to find easier, less poisonous prey.
This bright egg has sweet chirps coming from within it, but touching it makes your fingers sting.
Wallatrice hatchlings react to most noise and movement by crouching, hissing, and biting anything that comes within range. Even newly hatched they are venomous, but fortunately this poison isn't nearly as strong as that of the adults. Hatchlings enjoy playing with each other, which looks quite rough from the outside, but their hard feathers keep them from serious harm and their parents are always nearby to break up any real fights.
Adult wallatrice are wonderful parents and terrible to any other creature that dares to approach them. If raised from an egg by a patient magi, they will see that magi as part of their family, but that doesn't mean they won't hand out a good nip or swat with their powerful wings if offended. When not actively raising a family, wallatrice adults like to groom each other, lurk in high shadowy areas to startle people walking by, and eat sweet berries until something needs fighting.
