Newly hatched, a naja is no longer than a magis palm and completely white. It is not until they begin to age and shed that their colors begin to show. Like adults, hatchlings tend to spend their days in the sun. While adults only eat every few days, young najas require food everyday while they are growing. These hatchlings do not like being handled, so magis attempting to do so should be wearing thick leather gloves to avoid getting bit.
Deep in the Ixan jungle, these snakes can typically be found hanging out in the many ruins found within. Their bright colors warning other creatures to stay away. Najas are highly venomous but rarely bite, only when threatened or when a magi enters their ruins with malicious intent, like stealing artifacts. Magis who explore the jungle and ruins, if proven to be a good person, may be gifted an egg from one of these snakes. Najas never get lost in the Ixan jungle, even if raised from an egg far away, they instinctively know where to go, making them the perfect guides. Najas are solitary creatures, preferring their own company. They somewhat tolerate their magis, but they still have a temperamental attitude. While najas are venomous, they have the ability to cure most poisons and venoms with a bite, making them helpful to exploring magis who may run into poison dart traps.
