About Rackalily Eggs

It is said that the only and particular appearance of the first egg of Rackalily is due to the loving care of a common raccoon for the only presence himself collected along his wandering, a lily seed, which was not only a companion but, for its relaxing properties, able to be especially restful, something tough for the creature because of his sleep disorders caused by gotten lost, long before, and not being able to find his family anymore. The lily seed and the raccoon would have grown old together; the animal, leaving this world, would have shed a single tear, which would give birth, falling on the seed, to a beautiful flower that, growing, seemed to develop from an ovoid bulb.

The development of these splendid specimens seems to be due to an intrinsic nostalgic bond with Nature and to a form of Care that's still incomprehensible: most of the bulbs discovered and studied so far produce a transparent sap that seems to prevent the advent of a subsequent stage of growth.

Only a few, observed in their natural environment, seem to transform: the stem does not stretch, but branches around the bulb itself, on which a hard shell begins to form, almost gaudy; in a short time blooms a beautiful flower of the purest color. Very few of these eggs can hatch, giving rise to a creature that resembles that of the legend. Apparently, the spread of the species is made possible by the melancholic wandering of this creature.

About the Rackalily Creature

The Rackalily is a very reserved creature, but it doesn't seem uncommon to see it whizz along grassy meadows or rest near waterways. Recent naturalistic observations have been useful to identify three stages of growth of the weird-looking animal. Once hatched, the hard shell of the egg loses its color and crumbles, dropping the flower with large petals to the ground and revealing the presence of a very special living being, resembling a raccoon (but brightly colored), who takes possession of the lily freshly fallen off from the egg shell; it seems that he spends his entire life with it, without ever separating. His usual racings seem motivated to spread as much as possible, but in safe niches, the pollen of the lily, like he's hoping it can take root and promote this life form.

A particularity lies in the fact that the flower and the animal seem to be bound by something visceral: in fact, during its growth, the Rackalily loses its characteristic bright navy-blue colour, which seems to infect the pearly purity of the petals of the lily; the last sky-blue fluff stage seems to mean almost a nostalgic memory when compared to the new bright blue acquired by the corolla.

Following these appearances, it seems impossible to still see both the creature and its beloved vegetable companion. Some hikers from Ark City say they saw them crying together...
