Quadwing eggs consume more energy than their hatched stages, as part of their very intense and complex incubation process that's dedicated to growing the soon-to-be mammoth-sized creature inside.
Hatched Quadwings spend a majority of the first half of their life sleeping, so as to generate energy for their quick growth. Midway through their lives, they become much more active.
In terms of personality, Quadwings are gatherer-types and are very cooperative with their own kind and trusting of other species too. Many Quadwings live in collectives and support one another in each other's endeavors.
Quadwing collectives, as they are informally called, are under intense sociological study by scientists in Ark City. They are investigating the underlying evolutionary assumptions of caring for your own kind and how Quadwings are so selfless as an entire species.
