This silver egg has a familiar, tangy smell.
This bizarre creature isn't very nice. It was a biter as soon as it hatched, and it keeps biting you like it's searching for something.
Turns out the creature is a bloodsucker, and is now even more ravenous! It has also grown some quills along its back and has become much more active.
Chupacabras are very well known for their nasty habits of killing off livestock for food. Being bloodsuckers, they seem especially wasteful in this aspect, being able to finish off many cattle in one night. The jaws of a Chupacabra are incredibly strong to finish prey off quickly to prevent the loss of precious blood, and as such is their primary defense against offenders when running is not an option-which, interestingly enough, is the prime choice for these creatures, to remain elusive to sentient hunters like humans. Silver Chupacabras are particularly notorious for targeting domesticated animals for food, and being pack hunters, can consume more than a solitary Chupacabra ever would by the day. However, the advantage of being a pack hunter is that the wise (or the foolish) tamer can manage to raise one of these little beasts from the egg and have them be at least somewhat tolerable, due to the creature's mentality of its tamer being part of its "pack". Silver Chupacabras in the wild stake territorial claims by using their horrific, screeching voices to howl, which they can raise to unbearable levels to ward off potential enemies, though their most obvious feature is their silver skin which they keep meticulously clean. Why they get so temperamental when dirty is beyond many Ostleans, especially when they're bloodsuckers and are almost constantly needing to wash, but at least it's nice to know that they remain fairly sanitary throughout their life and one can only worry about an infection if they're bitten.
