"This patterned egg floats in water!"
"A fluffy little creature hatched from the egg. It loves swimming and seems totally at home in the water."
"Ailutra are small mammals which live in rivers and freshwater lakes. They love swimming and playing in the water. Pairs bond for life and sleep hand in hand, so they don't float away from each other during the night. Ailutra mothers carry their young on their belly whilst floating in the water on their backs, and gently teach them how to swim."

Ailutra were released on the 1st of June, 2017. They have one variant, an albino.
These small creatures have a mostly red and black water-repellent coat, with distinct markings on their face and tail. They have retractable claws that can be used for fishing, webbed toes and a surprisingly powerful tail to help them move through water.
Ailutra are fairly peaceful. They often live in family groups and eat mostly fish and tiny shelled creatures. They often float on their backs and soak up the sun after a hunt. They are known to collect shells and interesting objects they find.
Ailutra make good companions, as they tend to be clever and attentive, although they will often steal from their mages. They can be taught minor healing spells and get along fairly well with most other creatures.
Ailutra are well-known and have existed long. Sculptures and paintings often picture them floating in water or holding pearls. It is thought Faceless created them at the will of the Alicorn to inspire artistic mages, yet it is still a bit unclear if they were created before or after human-kind.
They are known to have some healing abilities and also water element-based powers. The healing ability is concentrated in the saliva, which the Ailutra applies by gently licking the wound.
