These hatchlings must be handled with gloves, as they are not yet in full control of the poison they produce. Luckily for their magi, the poison of a hatchling is not very potent, and is even used in some varieties of medicines. They like it most when their magi makes tiny nests for them to sleep in, usually built with bits of clothing or hair so the nest smells like their caretaker.
Venox crystalwings are brightly colored, the petals and shimmering scales on their bodies iridescent shades of red and purple. They are quite lazy, preferring to spend long days basking in the sun or resting beneath the shade of trees. Eye-catching and slow moving, they are easy to spot. However, they have no natural predators whatsoever. Every part of their bodies, from their skin to the petals, is covered in a highly potent toxin that will paralyze anyone it touches. No creature or person is immune except for certain varieties of unicorns, and even they show no desire to harass a venox crystalwing. Thankfully, venox crystalwings are herbivorous, and will only use its poison for defense.
