Baby Stage Notes

This soft, gelatinous egg has a tent of sticky protective silk around it. It was stuck on the ceiling.

Juvenile Stage Notes

The egg hatched into a soft-bodied canid with a long body and several sets of sticky-pawed feet capable of holding it on horizontal or vertical surfaces. Its eyes haven't opened yet, and it relies on being fed. It spends most of its time sleeping, and when hungry, it lets out high-pitched barks. It snuggles affectionately against any warm creatures that touch it.

Adult Stage Notes

The Updog is an omnivorous creature found in caverns, particularly around Mining Site S. They are notable for their frequent habit of staying to the highest reaches of whatever space they are living in, hence the name. Updogs frequently hunt by dangling from the ceiling, staying attached by their rear few sets of paws and reaching for anything that brushes against them. When they feel something, they grab onto it and attempt to wrap it in their sticky silk, then attach it to the ceiling to share with the others in their pack. They also forage for mosses and fungi. They find Fungusmonger mushrooms particularly delicious.

Updogs are highly social, and when not hunting or foraging, frequently can be found huddled together, grooming each other's fur and keeping each other warm. As a result, they are easily tamed, even when caught as wild adults, and can be encouraged to ride on a keeper's shoulder.
