Maractite: I feel like this is a tad busy, though not as badly as some other Maractite pets. The markings in the ear and on the nose don't feel necessary, and the tufts of fur being a different color is a bit distracting. With that said, the rest of the markings look great, and I love the carved horns.

Dimensional: Not too eye-searing, which is good. I wish the pattern could be seen a bit better, though.

And while I'm not sure why they decided to add a bell, it's utterly adorable. (Utters. Cow puns? Get it? Oh, never mind.)

Is it trying to be a Taco Bell sign? I don't get the bell either, unless the artist just forgot that kaus don't normally have been accessories. It'd be neat if it were removable clothing though, to use in other outfits.

The Maractite mustache is my least favorite, but the lower lip markings are nice. And I still want to yell at whoever decided Maractite markings should be gummy and 3D.

The only Kau that has a bell is Faerie..seems like the Magma one has one too. So it's likely a mistake and they put the faerie's bell on both those colours.

I am now completely surprised to learn that Kaus don't all have bells. I was wondering what the reference was. But at least now I know?!

It is removable, actually! It's considered a paint brush clothing item.
