This egg is brightly colored compared to the snowy nest it's tucked inside.

Most quetzalcoatls venture south for the winter if they live in places with cold seasons, preferring the warmth of summer, rainforests, and deserts. Not so for the red-capped quetzalcoatl; these creatures are covered in a fine layer of downy feathers all along their serpentine bodies to keep them warm. They remain active year-round in Silva Forest, the Alasre Mountains, and even up into the lower reaches of the Arkene and Boreus. They must eat high-energy foods to burn enough energy to stay warm in the depths of winter, so they tend to eat honey and fruit in the summer and switch to meat when these become scarce. One might imagine their bright colors to be disadvantageous for camouflage, but since they only hunt when snow is on the ground, their white feathers do them no harm, and though their red feathers may be bright to humans, their favorite prey (rodents, rabbits, and small hoofed mammals) cannot easily distinguish these colors from shadows or the bark of trees.
