Figure 1 shows the expected growth chart for your Hamachi. Unlike some virtual pets, this one remains true to the biological and genetic

If, however, it becomes restless or unhappy with your care-taking efforts, it will likely chew its way out of the cage and venture forth into the harsh, cruel world.
