The teju jagua has seven dog-like heads on a squat, lizard-like body. While ferocious in appearance, the tejua jagua is actually quite docile, neither aggressive nor carnivorous. It prefers to eat fruits, also enjoying the occasional treat of honey.

Curious. While simple in its behavior, the teju jagua reacts with curiosity to new things and new people. It can be distracted or bribed with sweets, toys, and music.

Docile. The tejua jagua will not attack strangers and does not hunt. It will, however, defend itself and those under its care doughtily. It is said the teju jagua was birthed by fiendish beings but was tamed by beings of good or the power of nature.

Stubborn. While good-natured, the teju jagua resists being intimidated or ordered around, as it used to being one of the most powerful things around.
