In The Shadow of the Dead Gods
Wild crodlus form small heards of about a dozen members, each led by a dominant female. In a given herd, females outnumber males and are related to one another, the dominant female’s mate outranks other males but is otherwise part of the herd. Males leave their birth herd on reaching adulthood to seek a mate in another herd.
Once per year, crodlus mate and lay eggs. The young can run and hunt within minutes of hatching, though few escape predators and humanoid raiders.
Crodlus are curious-sometimes to a fault-and have been observed examining objects and holding such items with their forelimbs. In the wild, they use simple tools such as sticks to drive small prey out of hiding.
