Silvan otter hatchlings demand attention almost from the second they hatch from their eggs, and magi are advised to raise two or more of them together. A hatchling left alone for long periods of time will become depressed, but happy hatchlings delight in playing pranks on each other and on any magi in range. Most hatchlings are unable to create the intricate toys that adults can, but they love to roll up great balls of snow that they can then lie across, especially in the hot summer months. As they get older, their creations and pranks get more sophisticated, but they're so adorable that most magi can't stay annoyed for very long.
Silvan otters are friendly, affectionate companions who love to be social - the bigger the group, the better. In the wild they often roam in large family groups, and they are very welcoming to not only other members of their species, but also to any other creature that doesn't try to eat them. When it comes to escaping predators, silvan otters have the advantage of the colour of their coat, which is brown in the warmer months and white in the winter months. No matter what the time of year, they have the ability to create objects out of snow, and will often animate them as playmates. Silvan otters have a special affinity for snow dragons, who they have day-long snowball fights with, and for butterflies, which they never tire of chasing.
