About Cactower Eggs

Countless thin, needle-like spines cover nearly the entire surface of Cactower eggs, leaving only a small area untouched in order for a red flower to bloom in its place at the very top of the shell.

Unlike the Kacki or Cachnid, there are no toxic properties to be found within Cactower spines, making it so physical contact with this species leads to nothing more than a bit of soreness at the affected area.

About the Cactower Creature

Natives of the Northern Plains, Cactower are renowned for their sheer hardiness in surviving the desert climate.

The species is completely sedimentary up until it reaches adulthood, at which point they develop stubby legs that can transport them for short distances before exhaustion takes over.

Cactower are extremely low-maintenance creatures, requiring only a minuscule amount of water every couple of months to function at a healthy level. It is for this reason, along with their limited range of mobility, that Cactower are consistently popular as pets for newbie owners.
