Sprites' wings are reminiscent of both insects and flowers. They have become iconic, even outside the community of sprite fanciers. Their tiny, winged forms are reproduced on jewelry and clothing. Because of their size, they can move at quick speeds, but they often glide through the air at a slow pace.Sprites eat nectar,sugar syrups,fruit,clover,acorn,pie,vegetables and roasted meat.Some species hunt pixies and smaller sprites.They make nests on tree branches,the underground and other hidden places in forests and grassy fields.The principal kinds are flower sprites,water sprites,hopper sprites,orchid sprites,glowing toadflies,hominid sprites and carnivorous poisonous sprites just as calx diabolicus.
When thinking about keeping a sprite as a pet/companion, you need to consider the following:
How will you acquire your sprite? Where will you house it? How will you be sure it gets the proper exercise and correct nutrition? The book: The Spiderwick Chronicles: Care and Feeding of Sprites has good facts and ideas. Here are some easy tips to remember:
1. If keeping a Sprite inside your house, it will be most happy in a flower pot or some kind of indoor plant, placed somewhere with lots of sunshine (like a window) with a view of the outside.
2. DO NOT capture a Sprite by caging it. You must first earn it's trust by feeding it or becoming correctly acquainted with it and then you may lure it to wherever you want. If you cage it or scare it, in defense it may bite or nip.
3. One thing most all Faerie folk like to drink is lukewarm milk, it is sweet and tasty. This is one way you can lure a Sprite.
4. Make sure your able to see them before getting one if not you might be looking or even talking to an empty cage.
