Being a variety of cockatrice living in the thickest of forests. They are feathered green overall, though here and there are feathers of the most spectacular coloration, providing camouflages against the brightly colored woodland flowers. Though their winged forelimbs are rather undeveloped, using the floatsacs beneath their skin and the rising forest vapors they are able to hover about the canopy, make their nest, evade predators and spot prey.
