Onrosus hatchlings are extremely playful, and bond very easily with their magi. It's necessary to keep some distance, however, because they grow extremely quickly. In just a few short weeks, a hatchling that could once be picked up will have doubled in size. Should the onrosus hatchling attempt to lay on their magi or mock fight, the result would be disastrous. As for training onrosus hatchlings, a few slices of watermelon are enough to persuade them to behave. Occasionally, though, a young onrosus will throw a temper tantrum, and lie on the ground sulking. When this occurs, nothing in the world will convince them to move.

It's not difficult to find a onrosus. They seldom wander far from water, where their favorite pastime is to wallow in mud to keep cool. Despite spending the majority of their days submerged in water, onrosuses are not great swimmers. They are too heavy. Instead, they simply sink to the bottom, where they search for tasty plants to eat. Onrosuses can hold their breath for surprisingly long amounts of time, and can remain underwater for several hours. They move by kicking at the ground beneath them, which propels them forward in strange hops. Even the smallest onrosus is born knowing how to swim, and takes to the water at any sign of danger. Of course, there aren't many animals who would dare to attack an onrosus. They are huge creatures, and males have tusks that can easily rip through skin and even armor. While onrosuses were once heavily hunted for their tusks, they managed to defend themselves quite well. An onrosus has a very powerful bite, and can crush bone with just one snap. They have also been known to sit on animals who anger them. It's simple to tell if an onrosus is enraged – they paw at the ground and lower their heads threateningly. Should one ever see this occur, it's best to turn and slowly back away.
