OK, so you confirm that the Sagbarifya can bbreath both in the water and in the air, despite the description of the gills. Thanks

Correct. The Sagbarifya can breathe in both water and air, though it's time is limited in the air.

Hi (again and again) Giabralter,

In the "Rare Griffin Family Members" section of the Heliodromus page you are referring to hieracospinx and criospinx. I gave a look into The Element Encyclopedia of Magical Creatures by John and Caitlin Matthews and they are referred to as hieracosphinx and criosphinx.

Is it a mistake on your side or a forecasted change?

It's a typo. sphinx needs an 'H'.

Limited to how long?

Hi, now that the book is release I found a new issue  :(
The Scintillant Albatross is said to have an average wingspan of 3.6 meters and a weight of about one kilogram and to be the Awakened version of the great Royal Albatross.
A quick search on wikipedia shows that the Royal Albatross is about the same wingspan, but weights 6 to 8 kg.

I believe the weight of the Scintillant Albatross is a mistake and its real weight is similar to the one of the mundane Royal Albatross.

You will discover that there are a lot of critter weights that make no sense whatsoever. Nothing I can do about it, of course, but I can complain when it comes up in conversation.

I guess you are right :(
I do not pay much attention to all weights, but this one looked obvious to me, that is why I post it here.

Weight can be very important!

Like figuring out how much meat you can get off a Snowmoose.

It was an honest typo that was then reformatted and then over looked.  It went from 10 Kilograms to 1kilograms to one kilogram. I do look up average weights when filling out the descriptions.

The Berlin bit was the typo I hated making.
