A newly hatched uhyz is a gleaming creature but it soon shows its propensity for getting dirty, preferably by the quickest means possible. Most of the time it accomplishes this using the remains of its own egg fluff, as well as any other dirt that can be found beneath a magi's bed. Hatchling uhyz form packs with other hatchlings roughly the same age, and often spend their time play-fighting in dark corners and investigating the cooled ashes of fires. From a young age they have to work on keeping themselves dusty, as any sunlight will clean their fur; fortunately this also means that they can be harder to spot in direct sunlight.

Uhyz are peculiar creatures: they love to get dirty and need it for camouflage, but their fur magically cleans itself when the sun is shining. Direct sunlight can turn a uhyz into a shining ball of fluff within minutes and though strictly found in buildings - the older and dustier the better - they still have predators. Fortunately, magi who live with a uhyz can take advantage of this need to re-dust themselves by convincing the uhyz to use its long, broomlike tail to clean hallways, corners, and that awkward spot under the cooking fire.
