Kanthras hatchlings are very difficult to care for. They are full of boundless energy, and are determined to explore every inch of the harsh desert they live in. The sun seems to give them energy, and any human is hard pressed to keep up with them. Fortunately, kanthras hatchlings learn quite quickly, and are able to survive on their own much faster than other hatchlings. Even the smallest kanthras hatchling knows how to survive in the harsh dessert, and can find water easily.

While kanthrases closely resemble lions, they are different in many ways. Instead of living in the jungle, these companions live only to the far south, in the harsh desert lands. They love the arid climate, and spend much of the time basking in the sun. Kanthrases cannot survive long in snowy regions, and as such do not travel much. When a magi has need of their kanthras companions, they must make the trek south. These companions can usually be found lying perfectly still in shallow holes in the sand, where they will remain for hours on end. When an unsuspecting animal finally wanders by, kanthrases spring into action, killing their meal with a single powerful bite or swipe to the head. These companions are incredibly powerful, despite their relatively small sizes, and should not be antagonized. Kanthrases have very short tempers, and will even bat at people when angered, though they never break skin. It is rare that they unleash their anger on their magi, for they are extremely loyal. They show great affection toward their human friends, and can be overprotective of them at times. Adult kanthrases extend this watchfulness to the young of their kind, even if they are not related. It is amusing to watch a kanthras companion patiently allow a hatchling to gnaw at their ears, or learn to hunt by pouncing on their tails.
