These creatures are actually quite rare, and do not spend time around large populations of humans often.

Due to this not too much is known about this evasive creature, other than appearance and behavior.
The name Trickster is quite misleading, as some may think that this monster has malicious intent. This is quite contrary to what is true. This little monster loves to play around and have a little mischief. They always want to have a little fun but sometimes end up making things go wrong for anyone involved, hence the name Trickster
The Trickster is quite fond of swimming actually, as it has a folding ribbed dorsal fin on its back for whenever it does get caught in water. And it is quite agile in the water as it is on land.
The Trickster usually keeps away from civilization, living in remote places of the world and forming small communities/packs of other Tricksters. Their mating can happen up to three times a year, and the result is a singular egg about the size of a small football. The eggs are quite weak and have to be guarded by the parent until they hatch.
Tricksters sometimes wander into civilization, and just the sight of such a rare and unfamiliar creature can attract alot of attention. Their presence usually entails a string of disasters, usually small disasters, rearely large scale, due to its insatiable desire to have fun and mess around with people.
