This plain, purple egg is a bit damp.
A little otter-like creature has hatched from the egg! It's very sweet and ridiculously cute.
It's...it's not an otter. As the creature has gotten bigger, its hind feet and bill have turned a distinct shade of blue.
Notters are a unique species of platypus with a weak affinity to water. Spending most of their lives in the submerged in freshwater lakes, Notters create burrows along lake-edges where they sleep and stay hidden during the day. Night is when they are most active, and because they eat almost half of their body weight each day, the majority of their time is spent hunting for food. With relatively poor hearing, sight, and sense of smell, they instead rely on the unusual technique of electroreception to locate their prey. Outside of breeding season, Notters are very friendly and amicable creatures that live in packs often ranging between 6-14 platypi per family. However, when the time to mate approaches, the males become particularly hostile. This is one of the few times that it's actually unsafe to approach or attempt to capture a Notter, as they are much stronger than they appear. During this time, males can be quite vicious and do a fair amount of damage with their claws if they are provoked.

Notters were created as a cruel joke for players wanting otters. The Notter's name itself is a pun for not-otters.
