Contradiction with Ocarina of Time
The fact that zoras lay eggs make Ruto and Link's engagement in Ocarina of Time pretty unlikely, Ruto being an egg-laying zora and Link being a human-like Hylian and (presumabely) a mammal. That fact may have been not known by 10-ish Ruto that gives Link Zora's Sapphire but was almost certainly understood by 17-ish Ruto met in the Water Temple.

Zoras laying eggs, while still having breasts is, however, consistent with being a monotreme, animals (like the platypus) that lay eggs, while also having the ability to breastfeed.Roderik 03:01, 17 June 2010 (UTC)
