This dark egg is covered in elaborate patterns.

Thousands of years ago, the ancestors of the falconerifas were ordinary elephants grazing on the mainland, back when tropical forests reached all the way to Alveus. Somehow, perhaps by swimming, these elephants made their way to Calidis and became trapped there. The environment harsher than they were used to, selection pressures forced the descendants of these elephants to grow smaller and smaller until they were no larger than dogs. Falconerifas are the smallest known true elephants, a result of insular dwarfism. They are endemic to Calidis where they hide in the dense forest brush, relying on their colorful skin patterns to keep them hidden from predators like Calidis dragons. Neither males nor females have tusks, but their trunks are still remarkably strong for their size and dexterous enough to pluck individual seeds from the pods of flowers. Shy in nature, Falconerifas are so good at hiding that they have only been spotted a few times in the wild. They are depicted occasionally on the walls of the Ashen temple, dressed in elaborate decorations and painted with colors even brighter than those that appear on the wild animals.
