These creatures start out as a litte damp egg, already glowing with their colors and squirming inside the rubbery shell. The eggs normally appear out of nowhere, found on nightstands and under pillows, left overnight by mystery-shrouded parents that had lurked in the shroud of unconsciousness before.
Amphidreas are weasel-sized, salamander-like critters with an almost gummy-like appearance, almost always painted in soft, pastel colors. They feed off of sleep and dreams they detect with their colorful spots and paler features, and will often either hop from house to house each night to satisfy themselves or dedicate their hunger to one particular(ly tasty) owner. They are childish and energetic, but will grow tired and grumpy quickly without any food, and are normally in their best mood in the morning and grow progressively worse until night, when they can eat again. Naps are wonderful midday snacks for them, so take a break and relax!
The Basic Amphidrea, or Lavender Amphidrea, is the most common type of this sleek animal found around. They are fairly flexible with their diets, though some may bear distaste towards particularly lucid or nightmarish dreams. These are considered to be the best kind to keep around as a pet, as they do not bear any extreme qualities and are moderately easy to lure in and tame, and they can normally thrive off of their owner's decent nights of sleep and basic care provided to maintain their rubbery sheen, which they seem to love to show off.
