Testidi, or Dragon Turtle Hatchlings as they are known in Common, are sizable omnivorous reptiles native to the warm oceanic regions of Minera, particularly drawn to the equator and the bustling shores of Godless Isle. Despite their young age, Testidi already measure an impressive 3 to 4 meters at birth, equipped with sharp, powerful jaws that serve as a stern warning to overly curious explorers. While amphibious, these creatures prefer the water, venturing on land primarily for food or to escape predators. Each year during the Equinox, the beaches of Godless Isle come alive as countless Testidi make their inaugural journey from nest to sea - a fascinating spectacle that underscores the relentless cycle of life and survival.

The Testidi, or Dragon Turtle Hatchlings, as they are commonly referred to, are an extraordinary species of aquatic reptiles native to the vast oceans of Minera. These creatures demonstrate omnivorous feeding behaviours and a pronounced preference for warmer waters, habitually congregating near the equator, with Godless Isle being a hotspot for their activities. This tendency also sees them gravitate towards the warmer shores of the grand continents of Tharador, Edrador, and The Twins.

Despite being classified as hatchlings, Testidi are impressively large at birth. Their bodies measure a robust 3 to 4 metres in length, their size immediately attesting to the formidable creatures they are destined to become. However, their size is not their most intimidating feature. Their jaws, equipped with sharp, powerful teeth, can effortlessly sever the arm of an unsuspecting explorer who unwisely chooses to approach these creatures without caution.

Testidi exhibit a distinctive behavioural pattern that aligns with the annual Equinox. The beach of Godless Isle, during this time, becomes a bustling nursery as countless Dragon Turtle Hatchlings make their pilgrimage from the safety of their nests to the beckoning sea. The sight of this mass exodus is one of nature's most captivating spectacles, a testament to the compelling rhythm of life and survival on the island.

Although Testidi are technically amphibious, their habitat of choice is unequivocally aquatic. They tend to venture onto land only when aquatic food resources become scarce or to evade a determined predator. Despite their intimidating appearance and size, Testidi, like any young creature, are more vulnerable to predation and thus exercise this precautionary behaviour to safeguard their existence.

In the grand tapestry of Minera's fauna, the Testidi play an integral role. They are both a symbol of the force of life as it struggles against the odds, and a testament to the island's delicate but relentless dance of survival and adaptation. Their life cycle, though fraught with challenges, underscores the extraordinary resilience inherent in nature's design.
