Malboro SeedlingFreshing hatched these Seedlings only know how to do one thing but to consume and grow sometimes consuming their own kind. As a seedling they are completely blind and cannot sense much around them. They can only smell with their many pores all over them when meat is coming towards them. That’s when they know it’s feeding time.
It has been documented that adventurer’s have collected and tamed such small beasts in their cocoon states and raised them as pets. These pets are raised as guard dogs and kept on a stick diet to keep their growth down to a feasible size so they do not evolve their deadly breath attacks. They smell quite pleasant when they are in their youngest forms.
