Ratumbidae do not spend much time as hatchlings, as these creatures grow fast. They spend much of their time scavenging for food, and can and will eat nearly anything. With their sharp senses of smell, it is nearly impossible to keep food from a ratumbidae. However, they remember those who give them food freely, and will repay favors later in life with loyalty and sometimes even magical valuables that they find as they scurry or fly about.
One of the most common and hardy creatures in the world is the ratumbidae. While not particularly appealing to look at, they are respected for their intelligence and their ability to thrive anywhere in the world. They range everywhere, from the coldest reaches of Arkene to the tropical islands of Callisto. They can lay dozens of eggs at a time, and hatchlings grow fast. While they have many natural predators, their prolific breeding means that once they have staked out a place to call home, it is incredibly difficult to get rid of them. Many people see them as pests, or at best, tolerate their presence as they flit overhead or merely scurry, too lazy to fly. Those who take the time, however, can train them to do numerous useful tasks, as they have a keen intellect and the hardiness to complete errands others creatures can't.
