Hello Egg Cavers!

Me and @valleries1 decided "What if the creature care guides in the library had words in them?" WELL NOW THEY CAN!

But we can't do it alone...

Welcome to the first Creature Guide Writing Contest! We will set up a theme for each contest, and each contest's entries are due one month (unless me or one of the four "moderators" of the contest are absent) and winners will be announced within three days.

Don't worry, we'll leave up an example

1) Please use the creature descriptions from the Archives! We want the closest thing to how it would actually be. One really short paragraph on the egg and 1-2 good sized ones on the creature's behavior and needs.
2) Don't worry about grammar. We will have a topic where the version with correct grammar is published! We promise not to change what you wrote unless it was spelled wrong or words were accidentally switched
3) Have fun! That's why we did this in the first place...
4) Respect due dates. If you are going on hiatus before the due date, please enter before. We DO NOT accept late entries!
5) One entry per person, per creature. Please do not enter from side accounts, or you will be disqualified.
6) Please use the Obtained From, Population Index, Habitat, etc. We use this for organization

Alright. Here is your first task:

Finding these eggs can be quite a challenge. This is mostly due to their size and the fact that they nest high up in the trees. To find one takes talent.

Sweeshes are nocturnal, making it a little difficult to care for them. They require a wide space and high perches, as they only come to the ground if they happen to be injured. They are very social creatures, so make sure your Sweesh has plenty of company. Groups of Sweeshes will help one another out to find food, water, and shelter. You will provide this. Sweeshes require the closest thing to their forest habitat as you can get.

Make sure you regularly feed your Sweesh and provide plenty of water and company. But most of all, love your Sweesh! They also pair well with other creatures!

@runa Haha moderators can enter contests, too, but they can't judge. We need all the judges we can get, for now, so I guess we'll have to take turns. Moderators also get to write random ones that aren't up for a contest, like in the descriptions in the archives
