This egg was nestled among some rocks.
Holding the little hatchling close to your heart makes it purr softly.
You seem to have offended the youngster; it's turned its back on you. Unfortunately, it just seems to be comical, to the little gryphon's great dismay!
Fully grown cryptic gryphons are magnificent creatures...when you can spot them. Their markings are confusing, consisting of spots, rosettes, and patches, all of which match the colors of their mountainous habitats. Holding still among some rocks will disguise the gryphon nearly perfectly as it scans the sky and the land for prey. For their prey, these traits are quite unfortunate, as even the very nimble mountain goats find it difficult to catch the gryphon sneaking up on them. Female cryptic gryphons seek out caves in which to make their nests and typically have one hatchling at a time to raise, spending nearly two years teaching it how to survive in the harsh, cold environment. By contrast, males are completely nomadic and solitary unless they're searching for a mate.
