An adult snopal is not much larger than a newly-made one, though they do seem to get larger at random. Most magi assume this to be the otters' doing, as the otters are constantly fiddling with their art projects, trying to make them perfect. No one is quite sure whether the snopals are supposed to be otters themselves or simply some creature the otter has seen wandering around the Keep. They're affectionate and loving either way, especially to their otter companions.
While looking through the historical texts in the Library, you stumble upon an image of ancient magi engaged in what appears to be a snowball fight. The caption reads: "Winter of the Year of the Disappeared Manticore: The Great Battale of the Snow-balles. In the early hours of the morn of the fifteenth day since the Wolf's Moon, a mighty snow did falle upon the grounds of the castle Keep which the moppets did run to-ward when a-woken from their slumber. There reaching, they began to pack the snow to-gether, which then they did round into spheres hand-sized and throweable. The moppets did throwe their snow-balles at each other with ferocitie. Within an hour, all combatants cold from the snow, the teams did order a truce to retreat inside to warm themselves with cups of heated milk and co-coa. One child, seeking to pull a frolic upon the others, did hyde behind a garden walle and did make snow-balles to throwe at his colleagues. Reaching for a snow-balle, he instead did grabe a smale snowy creature that did squeak, thus alerting his fellowes to his shenanigans. Thus, also, was he nibbled."
