This speckled egg is covered in short bristles and occasionally makes faint grunting noises.

Daeodus are one of many strange creatures native to the island of Calidis, relatives of the onrosus but much like pigs or boars in their behavior. Like many creatures of Calidis, daeodus grow to immense sizes, large enough even to be ridden – though few would dare ride an adult. Contrary to the popular belief that they are dirty animals, daeodus are actually quite fastidious, spending hours each day rolling in dust baths to keep their bristly coats free of parasites. Daeodus are known to have an excellent sense of smell that can detect magical objects, and for this reason, daeodus were brought to Alveus to search out magi during the magewars. The practice has since subsided, in part because of the danger these creatures pose if not raised properly, but some Alvean farmers still use them to find rare goods such as truffles. A population was also introduced to Foenara some years back, and poses a serious threat to food stores and travelers.
