Vvardenfell features some of the most unique flora and fauna in all of Tamriel! Did you know that their baby netches change color, too, depending where you are? I attempted to discuss this with Fendros, but he appeared distracted at the time.

    @beagles Great pictures! But are the colors really depending on the environment? Or might it be male (blue/green) and female (reddish) netch calves, as adult netch are differently colored too?

    This one would say that the Wardens define the green ones as Bull netches, and the blues as Bettys. This one would also think that is based on gender.

    Home indeed, since I set my first foot on that island. Can't believe it's almost 20 years ago. I especially like the 3rd picture. Beautiful lighting.

    I went a bit netchspotting, too.

    Found a bull and 3 blue calves in the North, just at Ald Carac:

    And a bull and and a green calf near Urshilaku camp (also in the North-West).

    Somehow no cows anywhere?

    I've witnessed something horrible, though...

    It seems to be location-based, based on which part of the island they live on. I could be wrong, though, and that is a great point! Encourage everyone to tour this beautiful landscape. There are so many hidden and beautiful treasures, waiting to be uncovered.

    Sorry for the late reply ^^;

    So are we going to make a hobby out of Netchspotting?
    Are we doing this?
