Tiny curved horns have forced their way through the shell of this egg.
Sensing, as any knowledgeable magi does, that this egg is aquatic in nature, you decided to bring it to the lake when it began to hatch. Even now, fine cracks have begun to appear, and you hold the egg close as you make haste to Lakira. Lowering the egg into shallow waters, you fall to your knees and watch as it hatches, anxious to greet your newest companion. At first it seems you have made a mistake, and a clumsy ibex hatchling is emerging, but as you continue to watch, you see that you were right to believe it belonged in the water .Where two hind legs should be, there is instead a delicately scaled tail, a beautiful color. With a few lashings of the powerful limb, your youngling has righted itself and has begun munching at the soft grasses that grow around this shore.
Capricorns are not usually found at Lake Lakira, but you are making your way there today to play with some hatchlings. Newborns are left here, because until their horns harden and grow, they can't defend themselves against some of the more dangerous sea creatures. When older, they will accompany their parents foraging or be left behind at home. For now, they'll eat the tufts of grass around the lake, what their parents bring back, or some of the treats you've brought for them. As you near the edge of the lake, a few capricorn hatchlings spot you and make their way over. Extracting a couple carrots from your satchel, you sit down and feed them, smiling at their enthusiasm. While you watch the little ones eat their treats, you absentmindedly scratch their heads, paying special attention to where their horns are coming in. Right now, there are bright colored nubs, but they are quickly growing. Soon these hatchlings will be able to join their parents foraging.
