Previous thread : http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/4160101/Image is of one of the charts im still working on the new map alright so the notes on the current game before we get to the rules. The world is now a approaching having a super continent. This has caused a drying and cooling landmass. and now many of the species must adapt to this changing environment. Notes for the gameYou can evolve both land and water creaturesOnly small and gradual changes can be made to the creatures.Please don't evolve the same creature in a row . All the creatures need some chance at evolution this only applies to line evos . diversification of species is allowed. and encouraged.No species will go extinct unless I say so or through an extinction eventMake sure all the evolutions are realistic and plausable.I have the right to stop and evolution if it appears to come too far . especially now as we start approaching intelligence and the eventual Sentience. Though no species is at this point yet its good for me to be prepared to put a limitation.
flaps as wellanyway go back to old thread for details on the evolutions and stuffalso forgot 2 other rulesplease give size for the creatures. its been decided in previous thread a good number of creatures have themalso link your evos to up here to their tree or the previous creature
>>4179031due to it's predatory and social nature, the purple drill lur often finds itself accidentally consuming it's symbiotic partners and dying of acid wounds as a result.some members of the species have developed a primitive light-sensitive hole with which they can tell apart shapes in black and white.
>>4179065oh yeah, I almost forgot the size ruleLength: 15cmHeight: 3cm(Girth: 6cm)if QM allows it, I'd also apply this size number retroactively to the majority of the drill lur family since I made them
>>4179033The Shaker Worms living on the Bubbleberry Globs evolve thin tendrils composed primarily of nerve tissue, used to communicate with each other in order to synchronize their fruit-shaking efforts.Bubbleberry Globs are 20-30 cmShaker Worms are 1-2 cm
>>4179031With the drying of rivers, many plants lose their humidity and die. And so, this acid spitting lur, evolves mandibles to better chew plant matter and most importantly. Manipulate that matter and hoard it in the nests that these lurrs dig deep enough where moisture can't be lost. The lurr does this only so he can collect the plant matter that grows on humid seasons after rain, so it can have food in the dry seasons. But thanks to this some actual living plants get their seeds underground before the unforgiving sun kills them. Also they have some hairs to better locate their environment know that they live most of their life underground. These are the harvelurrs
>>4179033The whitehead chibi adapts to the lack of water trying to collect rain in its modified leaves, wich helps it grow slightly bigger to its ancestors, but also attracts predators and thirsty creatures in general.
>>4179381Yeah i forgot about the size.Lenght: 9 cmHeight: 2,5 cmGirth: 5 cm
>>4179033The blackhead evolves to store more water in its pulpy body, wich now helps to cover its roots and avoid evaporating the water around its soil. This plan makes the chibi blob grow considerably larger even if now its main body is a delicious reservoir of water.This is the blackcap chibi.
>>4179036The bastard leapers have deloped water sacs to nurture its children. This makes them far more vulnerable while pregnant but their progeny has better chance for survival. These ones still have their fully developed third eye.
>>4179033Lumpmoss and occasional lumpgrass have started to take over the damp, unclaimed territory of caves. Cavemoss and cavegrass (respectively) have evolved to rely less on photosynthesis and more on the large amount of moisture in caves.
>>4179467Additonal note: these plants are not yet able to settle in the totally lightless portions of caves just yet.
>>4179031The Stalker Shellur has come into existence, with a longer exposed neck allowing it to stab Lurs from a distance in order to protect itself from retaliation. The longer beak also assists this purpose, with the Stalker Shellur now having a sizable size advantage when compared to most of its prey
>>4179031The Billed Shellur has come into existence, with its beak becoming specialized for searching for subterranean Lurs. In addition, the Billed Shellurs have developed a small tail and a set of simple ears, allowing for the beasts to communicate with one another by clanging their armored tails against the rear end of their carapace.
>>4179031The Bloated Shellur has come into existence, with its carapace being reduced to the bare minimum amount of protection and its skin becoming elastic and stretchy. Due to growing fat and large, the Bloated Shellur's sheer size protects it from most threats, it able to compress its organs and close its shell like an accordion should a threat arise.
>>4179381Thanks to mutation some of these hairs get sensitive to water. They start to smell moisture and can find plants and the moist soil under them
>>4179403Some whitehead chibis develope a watersacks that grows under the surface
>>4179403Others have leafs that grow into the surface to compensate animals stealing the water.
WE HAVE A NEW MAPthanks to some help on the discord as there's been a few issues with my tablet. Just to be clear Xeolea is in the process of forming a super continent and will arrive there by the end of the thread probbably sooner
>>4179456The ones with a patch of hair on the watersack tend to lower child death due to lower the heat in the watersack.
>>4179036>>4179033>>4179031Op forgot, old thread >>4160101for reference and naming purposes.
>>4179650i didnt forget the old thread i linked the archived thread at the top first line
>>4179506Some develope 2 small neck crests.
>>4179520The ones that have a magnetic sensitive tip find easier underground prey.
>>4179456>>4179645Just curious, how do the babies get out?
>>4179683Im imagining the mouth because being bastard horde descendants everything is messy and also is pretty big.
>>4179531To compensate the bigger weigt, some develope thicker legs.
>>4179639Just curious what discord channel is?
>>4179656My bad, didnt thought it is an archive.>>4179683How mate all our creatures? I thought there is a egg or birth canal?
>>4179531Others develope shelled legs to carry their new weight.
>>4179634Some of the whitfountains directly use their mineral shell to collect the water, as its bigger and it keeps it colder. It grows silver leaves again, specialized in getting the reflected light on the shell.
>>4179723Also its endemic of this desertic plains. Its time to use the map
>>4179664Some of this grow longer, a more robust frontal plate and three light sensitive points on each crest to improve precision with its peck. This is the Tracker shellur
>>4179710It could be a interesting bifurcation for one line to give birth trough an specialized birth canal and some trough their riple mouth.
>>4179036These bastard leapers remain completely amphibious but they get larger, with a better eyeshight that also works as an intimidation tactic. Its colours and false-mouth are combine with its size to intimidate prey and predator
>>4179790Also they live here
>>4179700https://discord.gg/5gWj5kthe evo discord is here if anyone wants to use it . we have side discusssion
>>4179587>>4179467>>4179381 any of these have a general size :?
guess lumpmoss dosnt need a size but the other two probbably do
>>4179818Same size as the first here >>4179404
>>4179818Lumpmoss varies greatly in size, often depending on how much space it's given. Individual lumps of Lumpgrass, on the other hand, are only as big as a penny.
>>4177862The Fubal Grazers that refuse to retreat to The Lilly Plats still suffer as prey and growing competition from opposing river dwellers. A more aggressive mutation overtakes some of the species as the rear joins that usually house small fins instead internalize as a new fin joint, allowing them to shake their fin-paddle ends with much more mobility and ferocity, making them dedicated swimmers and able to more easily harass other river dwellers without ramification.The Big Paddle Fubal has become fully dependent on aquatic movement, with no forms of ground locomotion.
>>4179725It's that anon again, back with updated trees!First, globs.
>>4180495Then those fast-speciating worms of many talents, the lurs!
>>4179645Carrying Leapers' hair becomes a protective coating for their entire back, shielding young and parent alike with the stiff, needle-like protrusions. These are the Hedge-Leapers, and in addition to this covering, they become bigger, broader, and more lumbering in their pursuit of defence. They are up to 40cm long and 26 cm tall.
>>4174728The Devilshark Flap dwelleth in the dark, smoggy depths of the devilic reefs, emerging to carry forth its potent toxic assault upon the upstanding denizens of the upper ocean; there, it uses its ancestral hallucinogenic acid nozzle to incapacitate prey, and then swiftly seizes it in jaws evolved from its scraping teeth and tusks, to drag them back own into the toxic world below, where it may feed upon them. Its fins and tail fluke bely a creature reliant on speed and force to make its way.It can be up to four feet in length, and can have a "wingspan" that extends to three and a half feet.
>>4180495The acidic fleeder is a new type of fleeder that developed acidic glands to spit their corrosive contents on the dead bodies it feeds off of, pre-digesting them and making nutrient harvesting more efficient. This also turns out to be quite useful as a defensive tool too, though it’s unlikely to kill anyone larger than a young Lur
>>4179033So, lets flesh out this place a little >>4179794The tribelisk is the natural association of three previous species: the lumpmoss, the globolithe and the clinging buds. All of these species are great at photosynthesis, but requiere a lot of water, something precious with this climate, except in this particularly humid region, full of lakes and rivers. Tribalisks rarely reach great sizes, and they are near a source of abundant fresh water.
>>4179033More of the flora of these humid regions>>4179794The rootshield grass descends from lumpgrass that protected itself by grouping. These clusters developed a root protection that reinforces the cluster and its surface roots. When herbivores eat the rootshield grass, they take a lot of individual lumps, but the main root and the lower lumps survive and regrow. In this way, its easier for herbivores to take just a bite of these clusters and pass on the next than to waste energy uprooting it.
>>4179031The hydra lurs make a comeback in >>4179794adapting to a herbivore life, with a double specialization: one of its beaks its good at pecking at seeds and very little lumps, like taking from a cluster of >>4180752. While the other beak is specialized in filtering the spores and seeds of >>4180749 from the water. They know live a more amphibious life in the various lakes of the region, being mercilessly hunted by forest gullflaps and >>4179790
>>4179036This subspecies of the inland gullflap has adapted in the rivers >>4179794.The plants of these region do not attract these subspecies, maybe due to competition, maybe because of their hardness and low nutritional value. These flaps prefer flesh, specially >>4180756 but >>4179790 too. Ironically this has made them smaller than their close ancestors, but much more agressive, with serrated tusks, good for catching the swimming hydra lurs and stop them from escaping, and also good for tearing the flesh of terrror leapers apart with ease. These are the apex predators of these humid and chill forests. Thats why are they called "dire"
>>4179036>>4180764Flying Flaps have developed basic hearing and smelling organs behind their gills, giving them much more situational awareness
>>4180576The Toxic Fleeder’s diet and acid production caused his blood to become toxic to a great amount of organisms. To take advantage of this they developed Aposematism, making their skin brightly colored to discourage predators
>>4179790Ripping leapers have developed claws and a more frightening pattern.
>>4179794A little window into the northern lakes of the west.
>>4180835All three of these species independently and simultaneously evolved the same organ??
>>4180886oh art cool
>>4180889Yeah, a lot of species are missing a few of the 5 Basic Senses. Now that life is nearing sentience, we have to put the senses in somehow.
>>4180907That's not necessarily true at all. The five basic senses as we know them are not a prerequisite for life, or some ultimate goal all organisms necessarily strive towards.I'd also like to maybe reconsider this in light of >>4179031 , specifically>make sure all evolutions are realistic and plausibleThree separate lineages simultaneously evolving the exact same organ at the same time as a response to environmental pressures on their different niches isn't realistic or plausible.It's also a bit of a lame/lazy approach in my opinion. Up to QM, though...
>>4180835Some Dire Inland Gulls have developed primitive, but very loud, vocal organs. These newly dubbed Squawkfish screech out to each other in order to mate.
>>4180835>>4180889>>4180920im going to say its fine for now. though future note. please evolve creatures individually
The planet has been struck with a large meteor causing heavy damage and killing much of the life that is around the impact site. but once again the skies of xeolia have become darkened by another natural disaster. This has done heavy damage to the ecosystemsoo uh same rules as usual 7 rolls per a person try to link back to some creatures from the old thread but if that proves difficult just give me the name and ill deal with it myself . any creatures that are in this thread you can just link easilyCan roll multiple times for a single creatureyou have 8d10 rolls so you can roll 8 random numbers between 1 and 10 for now im putting a pause on evolving for a few hours so yall can roll this. >>4160101 im just gonna provide thislink because its apparently easier to link this is a bit confusing to me still as a newish QM

stopping rolls now ill handle this when im fully awake
Guess whos finally awake. The skies clear over exolia. and the once diverse ecosystem has once again fallen apart. Many key longstanding species to the ecosystem fell in the large scale disaster. Even the powerfull hordes which once roamed the lands have fallen. MEaning the lost of the worlds apex predator. While their cousins still roam the shores. The gullflaps which roamed the skies have fallen. Though the plantlife remain relativly intact with the major species still hanging in there>>4180860 Ripping leapers>>4179065 purple drill lur>>4178574 finned mace headed lur>>4178567 green drill lur>>4177777 tall grass>>4175075 tiny brown lur>>4180752 Rootsheild grass>>4175720 wide truely towering tumorus trees>>4174594 silverfruit globliths>>4180845 Toxic fleeders>>4177526 Aquarium globliths>>4170278 Devlic reef>>4180371 Big paddle fubal>>4179747 Tracker shellur>>4171459 bubble grass>>4170786 hoard roller>>4165753 truely towering tumor trees>>4170463 seed pod globs>>4169251 vortfish>>4180749 Tribelisk>>4177918 fubal tailgazer >>4170317 stripeberryglobsuh Happy evolving... Do we even have any ocean creatures besides the vortfish?
also another note. im pretty sure the flaps are slowly being driven to extinction by the lurs at this point. only 3 flaps survived
>>4183057Survival of the fittest bitch, not my fault the Limbless Worm is the superior bodyplan in all situations
>>4183049Clearly that meteor hit in the ocean an annihilated almost all aquatic life.
>>4180576Now surrounded by enormous amounts of food, the Pack Fleeders have started moving in groups to make a more efficient use of the resources and to breed faster now that the habitat is favorable. To signal body piles and safe areas they have developed vibrating parts on their heads to send vibrations across great distances and hormonal glands on their tails which are rubbed on surfaces to send various signals (such as “predators here, need help” or “safe area, want mate”)
>>4180371The paddle fubal seems to be the only surviving sea animal along with the>>4178574To win this early competition, some of these fubals just try to predate on the maced sea lurrs, reinforcing their beaks and head against their blows, improving their eyesight a bit to detect them when burrowed and being generally larger. Due to the habit of using his famous paddle on the ocean floor to uncover the worms they are now known as rockpaddle fubbars.
>>4183085the vortfish is a sea based creature as well i said that in my post
>>4183085also the paddle fubal was a river creature
>>4183049The Bile Roller can now split into several smaller Bile Crawlers, which profess a much healthier lifestyle and disposition thanks to not being eternally squished in a humid rotten flesh-hole like they were before, and are also much better suited to rummaging through carrion. They only coalesce into Rollers for mating and for traversing large distances.
>>4183049>>4178574The mace-face lurs wake up in a straneg an eerie new ocean, full to the brim to toxic fumes and with many plant and animal species around them dead; soon, they are targeted heavily by predators, and desperately hungry. This can be seen as an opportunity, though, with the right adaptations.Those that survive best are a pale breed, with elongated and strengthened bodies and heavier mace-faces, as well as gripping tail-flukes. They grab hold of one reef, wrapping around it and gripping with their tail to steady themselves, and then bash open other reefs next to it to eat the glob-matter deep inside. They've been known to do the same to passing cousins, and to sue this technique to fend off predation.This is the pale mace-face. It can grow up to a foot in length, and be up to 3 inches across. The mace is almost double that thickness.
>>4183090Oops, lets say he moved to the sea because all of the empty space,
>>4169251 These vortfish change to a plant-based diet, near the toxic reefs, developing some resistance and barbs to sweep the floor and filter the phytoplankton of the surviving ocean plants and detritus.
>>4183049>>4169251Some vortfish survived the catastrophe and the growth of the now everpresent hallucinogenic reefs by climbing as high up the tumor trees as possible and staying there. They grew more flexible, more gracile, and now use their heavily-modified "fins" as grabbing tentacles; likewise, their signature tail. Both their front and back eyes are equally developed, which is to say: not very, as the sea-tree "canopies" offer little in predation at this point.Vortmonkeys, at least for a short period, live a life of peace and tranquility.
>>4183099needs a size
>>4183109Oh, woops! Size. Right.Up to a meter long.
>>4183110nvm ignore me. please put size in images>>4183109you though dont have one
>>4183113well thanks i just aw this XD
>>4183085The rockpaddle fubbal, like so many species which have taken to the deep sea before it, finds constant inhalation and digestion of devlic reef waste products and adjacent species colours it red over time, and across generations this proves advantageous to a predator. Thus is the Devlic Fubbal born.This creature has atrophied eyes--why bother, in such a particulate-rich environment, so full of hallucinogenic smog?--and strengthened forefins, while the middle pair have shrunken to make it more streamlined. It has slightly increased in size, as it proves more successful and well-fed.
>>4177918 The duskgrazers are smaller than their ancestors, focusing on their short bursts of speed, that now is used to compete for the scarce food between themselves. In order to avoid predators, one of their sides is now lighter, to confuse predators when they flee. They are called duskgrazers.
>>4183049>>4171459Some bubblegrass has reinhabited the ocean, giving a much better alternative to the devil reefs.
>>4183049With even less prey to hunt it then ever before, the hallucinogens of the Devil Reef dissolve much more quickly in water. However, its carapace becomes much much harder to combat the growing number of Mace-Faces.
>>4165753 The Three Level Tumor Tree dwells on shallow waters, rooting itself in the soil and rising above the water. Its wider base its lessened because of the lack of competition.
>>4183049Some of the Frog Shrubs that made their way out of the Aquariums ended up in streams of caves. These shrubs have adapted to more barren soils, and light up the twilight zones of caves.
>>4183181size :? i dont think we have an official size for this
>>4183192dependent on how deep the water is, I imagine
>>4183181Forgot the size: between 25 cms to almost 2 metres.
>>4183076As the number of fleeders increases exponentially, the right to breed becomes much fought over among the males. Thus, duels between the bigger males start, usually involving charging against one another and head butting each other like goats. For this purpose, the charger breed was born. Not all males are chargers but all chargers are males, and it’s not granted that a charger’s offspring will also be of chargers, though it’s likely. Chargers usually become the alphas of their packs, and are the only ones in the pack to have the breeding rights. They are much less patient than their smaller brethren though, and can be stunned by making them charge into a hard object
>>4183109Having abandoned its winglike fins and transforming them into pseudo horns covered in keratinous scales, the newly dubbed VORTSERPENT now travels by using its massive tail to wiggle about the waves. Spending most of its time spent hiding around and living within Devlic Reefs, the Vortserpent has developed an odd evolutionary quirk by combining the acid of its main prey source, the Fleeder species. Developing a sack of combined acid and hallucinogenic liquid, when hunting the Vortserpent will shoot out a large cloud of the vile concoction towards its prey, confusing and blinding the target long enough for the Vortserpent to crunch them up with its powerful jaws.
>>4183154Some bubblegrass has abandoned its bubbling nature, reversing its intake of air in order to help subsist the poor nutritious of the sand it lives within with microblobs. The newly dubbed FEATHERGRASS develops feathery tentacles to filter this food source, also developing a much softer blobby body that oscillates to better incite water flow. Water comes into the holes along the bottom and is pushed out through the top
>>4183154Some Bubblegrass grow much larger in size to help intake more water flow, developing netting along its exit valve that forces its bubbles into a constant stream of many mini bubbles
>>4183076Some pack fleeders grow much larger frills along their back that males wave and flash at each other to signify dominance. To compensate for no longer being able to stab over its back, the stinger of the Fleeder becomes longer and hangs backwards
>>4183076Other pack fleeders opt for a more herbivorous route due to a great reduction in herbivorous flaps this leaves a suitable niche open. these SQUIRTING FLEEDERS develop a muscle and larger acid sack along their tail that allow them to squirt their dissolving acid onto blobby based life and then mash up the softened material. In particular these Squirting Fleeders inhabit devlic reefs and bubblegrass fields, becoming quite numerous due to their quick reproduction rate.
>>4183076Lastly, other Fleeders become more carnivorous, feasting upon the grat number of Lurworms that inhabit that sands. These LONGLEGGED FLEEDERs develop longer horns that can sense vibrations and waves in the sand and water, allowing the Longlegged Fleeders to pluck up the lurs from the soil and inject them with a potent acid before proceeding to munch down on the twitching corpse.
>>4183265Aren't fleeders land animals?
>>4180749Some of the tribalisk just grow higher, bigger, with their buds becoming an unified mass protecting the roots and enveloping further the globalisk. The moss also forms an unified leave around the clinging buds. These are called Great Tribelisks.
>>4183324Isn't lumpmoss extinct?
>>4183327i clarified on the discord symbiotic species get same roll. so if the existed together they can stay together
unless it wasnt there before then this is illegal
the tribelisk as a whole survived its fine they just cant be evolved seperatly from this group
>>4183341The original tribalisk is made of normal globoliths, lumpmoss and climbing buds.
>>4183344so that specific itteration of the lumpmoss is alive.
>>4183265also im going to say o to this unless the. it was established that the only ocean creature still alive was the vortfish and whatever entered the water after without any confirmed fleeders and the fact the devlic reefs are ocean only im saying no
>>4183283also this is problem
>>4183097Bile boys have developed hearing organs out of their many nostrils, that way they can hear fleeders coming.
>>4183049Some VorthFish evolve to hunt the finned mace headed Lur getting more scales and a suction cup on their tail to catch their new prey
>>4183109Some vortmonkeys eat their way into particularly high Three-level tumor trees, giving them a nice, cozy home on the shores.
>>4183049Some Tiny Brown Great Green Lurs gain more jagged beaks and become omnivorous scavengers. While larger than their direct ancestors they are still not as big as the Great Green Lur
>>4183049After the catastrophe, the Green Drill's primary food source - the great green lur and giant green lur - have gone extinct, leaving it to subsist solely on plant life.In this strange new world, the Green Drills feed of the abundant tribelisks to sustain themselves, reaching colossal new sizes and losing their triple tail-spikes in the process.
>>4180860Surviving leapers adapt to the lack of food on earth by hunting the recent freswhater fishes in adittion to the smaller kind. Because of this they now have a tail, useful in the water but also useful to climb, and even keep a fragile balance with its powerful legs. The tailed leaper also has a frontal fin to help him swimming and giving him some camouflage between the water vegetation. Due to its new diet its also somewhat bigger than the old ripping leapers.
>>4180860With few nearby prey it can actually chew on, the Cave Leaper resorts to eating the unclaimed Frog Fruit of cave streams.
>>4179747The Lanced Shellur is the evolution of the tracker shellur that profits from the opportunity of being the largest predator on land. The Lanced Shellur is way bigger than before the extinction, the main reason is its new prey: the fleeders. Being relatively big, and attacking in groups with poison, the only strategy is to be big enough to avoid its acid boring trough the armor of this shellur. To avoid the acid hitting its sensible neck and head, its now way longer, also giving it a best view (with new and almost complete composite eyes) range and force. But this trade is risky, this beast consumes a lot of energy and its even heavier that your typical superpredator, being extremely slow and forgetting typical pursuing behaviour, having no problem in stealing caracasses and ambushing either. The changes in the front legs to be jointed is to enough strenght to support its head. While is true that it hunts this fleeders, it only pecks at the the less toxic parts. Why he prefers this prey over others is unkown.
>>4183680Locations of major cave streams
>>4183680Feeding on the frog fruit, this leaper has found that some trailgazer and duskgrazers feed have found the frog fruit as nourishment too, and now imitates its color pattern to fool their prey. This has made the creature omnivorous and specialized his stomach mouths to divide its dentalplan between a carnivorous one and a herbivorous one who chews almost constantly on the frog fruits and also on the leaves of the plants themselves. The frog fruit leaper doesn't waste anything that can eat in a food deprived environment like the caves it inhabits.
>>4169251Some Vortfish have become more omnivorous, hunting the relatively tiny mace-face lur, and becoming bigger as a result. In addition, the Vortfish has developed opposable "thumbs" on its tentacles to more easily grab prey while, if it doesn't eat it alive, bashing them with its mighty tail-arm.
>>4178567 These drill lur are tired of pursuing prey and have specialized in an herbivore life, piercing the hard shelled plants that dwell on land, specially all kinds of globalisks, Its innovation is the special muscles around its head, that can rotate 360 degrees, and very slowly, pierce the shell with its reinforced drill point. New holes have grown in the drill to better suck the pulp of the plant once inside. The point of its rear end is now black to be left alone in its feeding hole and camouflage with globalisks. A barkpiercer lurr can live its entire life inside the same hole of a globalisk (but that would be terrible news for the tree). Its usually prey of almost everything that dwells on land but its simple strategy of moving little, feeding a lot and be quiet is making them a rather widespread pest for >>4183324 and >>4174594
>>4183354Yeah that's my bad for being a retard>>4183360Let me just re-do the post for this one as wellahemSQUIRTING FLEEDERS as they have been dubbed take advantage of their acid to target the mostly untouched food source that is the obelisks. Developing a majority herbivorous diet, Squirters will slather layerings of acid all around the base of obelisks to slowly eat away at them, eventually resulting in a beaverlike timber moment. Squirting fleeders then tend to slowly hollow out the obelisk over a few months with their acid tail, tending to turn the larger empty shells into homes where family units of Squirting Fleeders will seek shelter from larger predators.
>>4180752While its roots become thicker and tougher, the Cotton Candy Shrub's head has become soft, delicious, and nutritious! This further encourages herbivores to eat the regrowable head and leave the roots alone.
>>4180371Having an abundance of low lying bubble grass to feed off of, the Fubal grazer has evolved into the chonky FUBATEE. The Fubatee's tail has rotated for that of a large paddle, allowing for slower and more deliberate movements when combined with its large front paddles. The other two limbs have atrophied, the muscles making way for an advanced gut that processes the spongey material of the bubble grass with utmost efficiency. The jaw of the Fubatee has also become more bulbous and hollow, with sensory pits along the front allowing the fubatee to make up for its poor eyesight by sensing the bubbles that its prey spits out.
>>4180371With the great number of blob based lifeforms that spit out nutritious water of some sort, the Fubal Grazer has evolved to best make use of this by becoming the FUBAL FILTERER. Developing more agile and large paddle fins, that allow the Filterer to hover over rich filtering spots, it is capable of staying mostly stationary for an indefinite amount of time. To better assist this filtering, the lower jaw of the Fubal has developed hollow thin grooves all along it, with a scraping upper roof to its top beak removing the microscopic morsels from its long chitinous teeth. A hole also has developed in the top jaw to allow for filtered water and fumes to pass through.
>>4179065with bastardous hordes extinct, the purple drills move onto their cousins, the bile roller. having developed longer, pointier drills, the purple drills are able to pierce through the cracks in the roller's armor and nest inside.
>>4180371Seeking competition from its larger cousins, the Fubal Grazer has had to adapt to find new sources of food on the fly. This has resulted in a powerful fast type of Fubal, the FUBAL SKIRMISHER being selected for. Aerodynamic and cutting back on weight wherever it can, the Skirmisher is now likely the fastest creature in the entire ocean.
>>4183735The disconcerting Nazar Leaper has developed specialized eyes for seeing within parts caves where light only barely reaches, and has resultantly redeveloped it's third eye. In addition, its teeth have flattened, making it easier to crush small, hard-shelled prey.P.S.: To address a misconception, Bastard Leapers do not have two mouths, but one large, three-pointed mouth.
>>4183892Is this just a cartoon tree?
>>4184058No, that's just the visual gag. In reality, it's a regrowable lumpy mass.
>>4178574Having great competition in the ocean from the various types of Fubar, the Macehead Lurs have been forced to diversify and fill various small niches. First among these is the Splithead Malur. Serving as a burrowing predator, the Splithead has made its tail fin both look and smell like a bubblegrass blob. This attracts stupid Fubar targets, the Splithead then leaping forth from the sand and attaching to them like a lamprey
>>4184080Fair enough.>>4183049Starting my extinction-event chart updates and epoch 4! But much of it will have to wait for dinner. Got globs so far!
>>4184158 (Note that I left Frog Shrubs as a survivor simply because, clearly, some have continued to evolve and to do so beyond the aquarium globelisks.
>>4178574Secondly are the BLOODLAPPER MALURs, having a long needlelike tongue that sticks far out of their hardened mace head. these Malurs are parasites that bury themselves into the soft parts of Fubals, letting the rest of their body hang out and slowly reduce down to nothing but reproductive organs over time.
>>4184153Third and lastly are the SNIPPER MALURS, having a sharp needlelike beak that has grown out of their mace head. These snippers feed by having transformed into a omnivorous lifestyle. They stick their sharp beak into holes either in bubblegrass or carcasses, chewing at the soft interiors. Larger bubblegrass organisms can be entirely hollowed out by a horde of Snippers, being a nuisance upon the fertile plains of the ocean.
>>4183735A different lineage of frog fruit leapers develops in the southern caverns (>>4183719) in the highest mountains of the planet. This leaper still ocasionally gets out of its cave catches river fish outside of the caverns. For better locomotion on this hostile enviroment, it grows better arms who begin on its sides and make his characteristic leaping something that it only does when jumping on prey. These new arms also let it hit the shells of his deceased prey on the ground to soften and crack their armor before eating them. The third eye was lost to make space for the brain big enough to use the arms of the leaper in that way.But the greatest change is more subtle, the three pointed mouth becomes a four point star system, with two jaws with plates designed for plant matter and two jaws for flesh. A second sub-stomach now digest plant matter and regurgitates when neccessary to keep chewing making it a ruminant.
>>4177777 The tallshade grass prospers in slightly arid climates, his leaf bending behind to give a little more shade than its ancestors, and its root going the same way to protect water reservoir cells that now grow under the shade. In groups they cover each other stems of excesive sunlight creating a very soft ground to step on.
>>4183144Competition from the Big Paddle Fubal family puts pressure on their grazer cousins, as the water's niches are filled much better by much larger and more dangerous fish. The Grazers have no chance to compete, and as such are pushed into crawling onto the shoreline with their still present crawler legs, and try to eat the land grasses growing there.Finding little competition for the free growing Tallshades, generations come to live predominantly at the water's edge feasting on land grass and only requiring dips into the water due to their inability to lay eggs on land. They have in turn become flatter in nature and their legs have increased in strength to better facilitate this more land based lifestyle.
>>4183324The symbiotic species of The Tribalisk begins to have its Lur components grow a bit of rigidity, as branches stem from the plant to reach out and make new funnels all along the plant rather than just situated at its top. This allows it to collect greater amounts of sunlight and house more ample supplies of moss, making the areas that are inhabited by many of these symbiotic monoliths form their own canopy of moss and soft-skin funnels.
>>4183278Pack Fleeders that are perused by Shellurs are forced into adapting much more safer forms of habitation, as they cannot outrun the large beasts that now hunt them. The grippers on their limbs become more specialized in clinging to the branches and stems of The Tribalisk Lur Components, allowing packs of Fleeders to reside away from hunters. With their extended tail, they can wrap these appendages around a branch, and sleep hanging from them without fear due to the lack of flying predators.
>>4183049Flaps experienced such a huge die-off I almost wonder if future generations wouldn't know them by a different name
>>4184624In many cases, what survived are barely recognizable as flaps at all!
>>4184626sad babies only 4 lines remain. will they survive extinction atleast they diversifying
>>4183049Lurs were a huge and diverse group...
>>4184706They remain so even now!>>4184626Also, just realized I accidentally added the squirting fleeders twice and missed the longlegged ones. Will fix next time!
>>4184267Having changed their coloration to be harder to notice, the Grey Fruit Leaper are otherwise the same as the Southern Fruit Leaper
>>4184267Some southern fruit leapers further specialize in faster waddling about in and out of caves, and swifter movement under water as well. Shifts in their posture and the development of a tail and membranes facilitate this, and their eyes develop further to adapt to a variety of different lighting conditions. They become more experimental in diet as well as environments--curious generalists. The trade-off is that they can no longer leap as far as they once could, nor are they quite as adept at any one of the specialties than an animal better suited to a specific environment.These are the Jack-of-All Leapers.
>>4183049Colonial Globs are what happens when a very centralized seed pod glob, which stores all its nutrients in a single large pod, finds countless drill-faced monsters desperate for food in a landscape where everything is increasingly willing and able to break open globelisks for food.These plants start as a single smallish seed pod, with the usual propensity toward interlocking, webbed tendrils and anchoring roots of their forebears. However, their growth pattern is unique: as their tendrils expand upwards and outwards, they merge together and form more seed pods at each juncture. As these grow bigger and heavier, they come to touch ground; if that soil be fertile, they continue to grow and put down roots, and otherwise they cease growing and begin expending all their stored energy to produce more tendrils, to network with others of their kind or to spread out in search of more habitable land. Wherever two such seed pods touch, they effectively merge into a single great organism, exchanging nutrients and chemical signals which then inform the tendrils of both beings as to which direction they should grow. to find moisture, sunlight, and food.(Size irrelevant and highly variable; seed pod sizes usually max out around a foot in diameter, but are more often smaller)
>>4183189Frog Shrubs in the outside world begin to adapt for life in rivers and lakes, and not just in caves. Their tadpole-like seedlings now have small "fin" leaves in many instances, and rainbow patterns. They whirl through the water almost like an animal, following currents and evading obstacles they bump into, until they get caught somewhere they can settle and put down roots; there they begin to grow an adult plant: the Spectrometer Frog Shrub. These plants are grey and about half the size when they grow in a cave, aquarium globelisk, or other area of poor life, to conserve nutrients and energy; outside, though, they grow in virtually any colour, based on which part of the seedling was best able to absorb light in that evironment. Unlike their ancestors, they are almost always a single, solid colour, apart from their blue stripes and spots.
>>4184757Some Jack-of-All Leapers stop being Jack-of-All and start being Jack-of-One; that one being Big Brown Lurs. They use their new elongated claws to anchor themselves onto the Big Brown Lur, and their powerful radula to scoop up it's insides.
>>4183403Some Bile Crawlers develop a second set of teeth: these are much longer and flatter, useful for digging through soil, but not so much through carrion. They also begin clacking their teeth together to send signals to members of their pack about when a predator is nearby or when it is time to coalesce back into the Roller.
>>4183417Some tree-nesting vortmonkeys adapt to the increasing pressure of predation with a trio of adaptations: 1. bigger, tougher bodies2. specialization to their eyes (the back eye is now highly adept at detecting changes in light and movements, alerting a vortmonkey to danger behind, while the front eye has two "pupils" which can focus indepdently to hone in one distance and better perceive depth)3. specialized scoots almost like ears, which detect water currents and vibrationsThese extremely-alert, toughened monkey-fish are called Great Vortmonkeys.
>>4183916The immense hunger of The Fubatee leads them to waddle into uncontested areas were they can consume like living trashcans. They grow even heavier as they not only feed on bubble grasses, but proceed to find homes in cavernous systems where they feed primarily on leaper colonies and Frog Shrub plants, often in their entirety.Fubatee Families often take residence in a cave system, where they have ready access to food and no competition with other fubal species. Cave Fubas have eyes with high dilation as to assist seeing in the cavernous darkness, and have thicker nose beaks, as they often bump against walls with them while searching for food. Caves are now filled with the sound of Fuba bellowing and the tapping noise of their bony noses bumping around.
>>4183164The Reefs begin to experience active change again as a the spores they release during their fuming periods grow, becoming visible to the naked eye. These reef seeds scatter across the seabed wildly, often being eaten by scavengers, but being large enough that they're not consumed by filter feeding, and can sprout a new reef column instead of budding from one of the already present reef conglomerates.
>>4184757To not only defend against the Cave Fubas but also hunt them themselves the Jack of all Leapers have become bigger developed stronger claws and started forming small packs
>>4184816Darker in color for hunting at night, the FOOLISH SAMURAI LEAPER hunts for Big Brown Lur while they sleep. In addition, it has grown an even longer radula and big sharp tusks for ripping flesh.
>>4183107With the new developments in sea plants, tood in the ocean is now full of devil plakton and feathergrass, the sweeping vortfish still doesn't have any real predators and a lot of food. Growing to really monstrous size, the vorthemoth has specialized in sweeping the ocean from surface to floor of its plankton and detritus. His colours have changed to be lighter on his underside, and its tentacles have simplified and multiplied: the two new tentacles have more barbs that catch more plankton and the can be pushed into the main barbs of the mouth. The other tentacles have stronger teeth-like barbs, used for defense and shaking the floor and reefs to get more food. Ironically this also expands the plankton further. Its only eye is now composite and has almost ver ample view, if relatively simple in details.
>>4184832The strain of its giant body and eight eyes its too much for the cave fubatee brain to handle, losing half of its eyes while relying more on the pits of its head, now with a more generalist jaw.Its body now made space for a slightly bigger brain in exchange for simpler fins to make room for the protection for the brain. This has made the fubatee less clumsy to an acceptable degree of dexterity, so it can walk withou falling on its mouth. This is the Hunchback fubatee
>>4185034Don't you mean *Vortmouth?
>>4184781Some colonial globs adapt to the entrances of caves, its roots feeding on the ground detritus left by fubatees and cave leapers, but its net of stems covering the entrance where the light enters and the humidity tries to escape. Only this part of the glob is normallly visible, his ground roots being very small and surviving on little. These are the colonial webs. Size variable
>>4174594 Silverfruit globliths adapt to the squirting fleeders, reusing its acids as nutrients and decomposing the remains that the beaver-like creatures leave inside their trunks while living inside. Basically the silverfruit has hardened to not quite die at all, and regenerate even after being hollowed inside, using what it has around, in this case, the fleeders. What is certain is that thanks to the fleeders, their fruits can travels far away, and so, they made the most of their situation as homes for this creatures. The young globeliths start growing covered in a substance that when mixed with the acid of the fleeders, it just tastes very bad, and so, they are left alone until they grow, and even protected by the territorial fleeders. Due to this ability to resurrect and curse its devourers to protect its children, now its called Revenant globelith.>>4183815
>>4183993The Sheikah Leaper has developed 3 vibration sensitive indents on its skin which allow it to hear incoming Fupa. In addition, it has grown smaller, becoming faster and requiring less nutrients in the quite barren environment of caves.
>>4183469Due to it's large size the Green Drill, it's maturation time has become excessively long, leading to many deaths of infantile Lurs. To circumvent this, problem, the Green Drill has developed a rudimentary jaw with which it can safely harbor it's off-spring inside the drill and feed it, until they are already juveniles, capable of defending themselves.
>>4185107Here's also another fun infographic on how that worksand before you ask, yes that basically makes them marsupials.
>>4185110Since it’s another maw that makes them more like a crocodile
>>4184357The Grazers, free from any predators, are able to consume and grow their roaming lands without pressure for things such as personal defenses or foreign ideas like food competition. The abundant, untamed grasslands are free for The Fubal's taking, and they do take it. Their shells do not evolve to cover their ever growing amount of fat deposits, causing them to rest on top of the grazer's mass rather than around it, and its legs develop into stronger stubs that can drag all that new weight around.They have expanded their grazing territory substantially, but still do not form herds, as they have no external pressures to work together or share food. Instead they each wander about independently, and once a year return to bodies of water to breed and lay eggs.
>>4185116crocs do that? never knew
>>4185133Yep, that’s how mother crocs keep their young safe. Or maybe it was gators but I’m pretty sure it’s crocs. Never really figured out which one did it
>>4184303Some tallshade grass that ended up in more arid region developed to store more water within themselves, their bodies becoming thicker and losing their leafs.
>>4185174hey OP, not to make accusations of being a furry or anythingbut why does the central peninsula look like a happy wolf?
>>4185225i did not make the map i have a assistant while im having tablet troubles so i have no clue but honestly continents can look like whatever
also i dont think either of us saw that when looking at the map
>>4185240it's alrightjust a little innocent banterbecause finding shapes in things is always hilariousdid you know that north america looks like a pig and/or duck depending on the angle you view it?
>>4185250i was trying to make the world look like a dragon, like how some old peoples thought america was a big turtle. thought it would be good for the civ stuff later on.
>>4185261oh yeah, I can totally see thatbut since I can't unsee the center as being a wolf, this looks like a furry throwing up his arms in cheers to me.
>>4185250Don't forget Italy looks like a boot
>>4185317just the whole of western europe is just a dinosaur my dude
should probbably move off topic chat over to the discord guys>>4185323>>4185317>>4185261
>>4185356I'm not even in the discordI never saw you post the link
>>4183469Some Green Drills return to their predatory ways in light of much easier prey right around the very plants it's cousins are trying to eat.Having developed a specialized meat-drill, the Green Butcher Lur heavily predates on squirting fleeeders
>>4183446The Brown Lur, facing predation by the FOOLISH SAMURAI LEAPERS has decided to adapt. Developing a horrific mutation of chitin on top of its head, the newly dubbed SAMURAI LUR has unsheathed a claw of chitin from its rear end. This blade can extend at will with the flex of a muscle. Despite this, the Samurai lur has decided to return to a humble lifestyle, feeding on smaller glob based lifeforms with its flat beak. Sensitive hairs cover the Samurai lur as well, allowing it to anticipate vibrations in the air and react to attacks with either a deflection or a savage swinging of its tail blade.
>>4185661*burrows behind you* "heh, nothin personnel, kid"
>>4185120The Grazers, facing newfound predation, evolve longer legs that allow them to shuffle away faster than their unevolved cousins. In addition they evolve a reduction in tail size and an eye spot on it, causing predators to attack it by accident and allowing for the Grazer to get away.
>>4170317 In the saline and cold seas of the southern pole, a species of stripberry glob adapts in a most curious way. His berries become few but with a thick shell and a lot of pulp and seeds, protecting them somewhat of the cold waters and its creatures. They retain the original colour but have a very different structure, having rather uninteresting taste. The other adaptation is because of the needs of the shaker worms, wich now produce a special kind of silk around the part of the roots the inhabit, this silk insulates them and keeps the water were they live some degrees warmer, enough for them to survive and also to camouflage them from carnivores wich only seek the plant for them.
>>4183695Seeing an expansion in prey items and a lack of large predatory niches, the Lanced Shellur expands to fill out a number of specialized niches. First among them is the MONORAIL SHELLUR, known for being a speedy predator that hunts in the wide open plains. There they savagely rip apart the defenseless Grazers that live there, their hefty frames slamming into them like a freight train.
>>4183695Secondly are the HARPOON SHELLURS, focusing on hunting their now more mobile Fleeder prey. Developing a specialized tongue, the Harpoon Shellur shoots this tongue out at prey and then reels them in like a fishing line. The eyesight of the Shellur improves as well, it capable of seeing things such as depth perception now.
>>4183695Lastly is the STALKER SHELLUR, moving into the cave systems and occupying the niche of the largest primary predator of these regions. There they stay stationary over the underground rivers, snapping up any prey that happens to pass by with their razor sharp beaks. In particular they are known to combat with Fubatees for dominance, the agility of the Slalker allowing them to win as long as they achieve an ambush.
>>4185120Some of the grazers see this new agressive neighbours and just go somewhere else. The southern tundras aren't exactly full of food, but they are lacking in predators and so this snowgrazer can live a calm life on land. On the water the thing is different and so the change of coloration helps him avoid the predators that live there. The other change is a lot of hair around its body.
>>4184461Now that the shellurs are actively hunting them down, the fleeders have to adapt: the pack takes a new behavior, putting rotating sentinels to guard the pack while they feast, developing the ability to stay on their hind legs for brief periods of time by supporting themselves without their long tails. They also developed eyesight to aid in their duty, though it’s still rudimental and they mostly make use of echolocation like before. I’m too lazy to draw it but the Fleeder charger also has achieved these new evolutions as it is not a separate breed but just a role in every pack.
>>4183936A couple of purple drills have developed additional muscles around their ribs, allowing them to perform a curl motion. Using their new found dexterity, these purple drills begin stepping on their ribs, allowing for greater, albeit more fragile, mobility
>>4183892The JUMBO Cotton Candy Shrub has more than doubled in size for increased longevity ~~and now comes in blue raspberry flavor~~!
>>4183953In the bid of diversification that the Fubal Grazers have had to undergo to compete with their Fubatee and Filterer cousins, the first species to develop is the FUBAL CLEANER. These Cleaners reduce themselves in size and remove their lower layer of thin chitin since it was doing little other than slowing them down. They tend to swim around larger Fubatees and Vortmonkeys and pick off Bloodlappers from them.
>>4184854Some of the hardened spores that land upon the seabed thrive as they don't develop hardened casing and thus aren't subject to getting drilled into during their younger stages by invasive lur subtypes.These Devlic Strands instead have only the internal circulatory system of the reef, which floats upwards towards the water's surface. It facilitates its growth by absorbing the Devlic fumes around it, which is converted into strand biomass, leading these sea grasses to become very lond due to the abundance of Reef Fumes.
>>4183953Secondly are the newly dubbed FUBAL SKIMMERS. These Fubals have taken to an omniviorous lifestyle, opting to continue their fast lifestyle and increasing both their speed as well as their metabolic rate. Though this makes their lifespan much shorter, Skirmishers manage to at least get a nibble of food before others can get to it and seem content to live life in the fast lane.
>>4183953Thirdly are the RHINO FUBALS. These Fubals are much larger than they once were, taking on an omnivorous lifestyle where they eat both small Fubal and Lur based lifeforms as well as whatever Glob based life they can get their little mugs on. Being opportunists, they are known to be cannibals as well, with the life of a Rhino Fubal being survival of the fittest.
>>4183953lastly is the SAILFUBAL, taking to life in the deep ocean. These Sailfubals stick their large membrane layered fins out of the water and conserve energy by letting the wind assist their swimming, letting the currents and the winds combine to take them to the nearest Glob tree glacier mound. >>4185899Fubal Skimmers also have developed rather advanced eyesight to help with this speedy frantic life, my bad.
>>4185107Going uncontested by predators past a certain age due to it's double-layer of armor, the Green Drills find themselves at peace, happily eating away at yet another new food source, unclaimed by other herbivores - cotton candy shrubs.With no predators (in adulthood) and untold food supply, these Drills grow to colossal new sizes, giving birth to the Blue Lurossus with it's specialized cotton drill.
>>4183924Being often outcompeted by Fubatees in terms of the large herbivores of the ocean, the Fubal Grazers have expanded to better fill their ocean niches. First among these is the GRILLFACE FUBAL. So absorbed in its lifestyle has it become that the Grillface's teeth have attached and become permanently affixed to the upper jaw of the Fubal's face. Though incapable of opening its mouth anymore, the creature's gums simply clean off its teeth and its large tongue does the rest of the work from there. In addition, the Grillface's rear fin has turned into two highly mobile fins, allowing for the creature to make 180 degree turns on the spot, allowing for even swimming backwards to be possible.
>>4183924Specializing upon feeding on the unevolved Devlic reefs, the newly dubbed MAROON FUBAL has become the doped out stoner of the sea. Though having a low tolerance to the LSD that these reefs spit out, the Maroon Fubal merely exists with the hallucinogenics in its system, making it an abnormally chill creature that is content to swim in one place and filter for its days. Even if attacked the Maroon Fubal will scarcely react, instead relying upon the high density of drugs in its flesh to render its predators completely inert.
>>4183924Lastly is the FUBAL BEHEMOTH, the current largest creature in the entire ocean. Being an open ocean long distance filter feeder, the Behemoth has developed a powerful back fin that can propel its immense mass with relative ease. In addition, the Behemoth is known to feed upon swarming Fubal fish larva and has shown evidence of an advanced memory that is able to remember bubblegrass blooms based on changes in the ocean's temperature.
>>4185661Unable to burrow because of its enormous "hat", the Samurai Lur has settled for slithering on the surface, where it will use its hat to block enemy enemy attacks and hide under when it sleeps. Additionally, it has developed a sheath-like structure for its blade, quickening drawing times and protecting the blade when not in use.
>>4183049The mace lur has developed an even larger, more advanced tail, that comes in a very distinct triangle shape when viewed from behind.With ever growing tails, comes ever increasing speed, turning the once sluggish mace face, into an aquatic battering ram, able to take on predators far outside it's weight class.
>>4185896The Demonic Strand is one of the few plants to survive in the southern sea, due to salinity and cold. These strands don't feed themselves on the fumes of devil reef, but instead they are partly chemotrophs, feeding on the gases of the thermal vents and also keeping themselves warm. They have changed colour appropiately,
>>4184863Big Red Leapers travel in packs, too, but never larger than three and their young: a dominant couple and a hanger-on for genetic diversity. Their sexes are unclear, and don't seem to precisely align with common earthly concepts, since each takes turns giving birth and brooding, though the third does so less frequently and births fewer offspring. These large plains creatures live in dead, hollowed-out aquarium globelisks or revanant globelisks, and specialize in raiding their living relatives by night for fruits and commensal organisms. Each "sex" seems to also play a role: defender, collector of foodstuffs, and lookout.
>>4183407The Spiny Vorthfish is the svelte, slight-framed, and more swiftly-swimming coastal descendant of the grabbing vorthfish, driven to this niche by the predation and competition of fubals.
>>4185061Colonial webs beget colonial nets, with specialized hook-shaped seed-pods taking shape from roots which hang loose and do not connect to anything for some time; these snag passing animals, and strong roots and a muscle-like action within the globs' tendrils cause the net to entangle its hapless passerby, ensnaring and killing them. Their corpse becomes fertilizer, and a structure for the net to spread down to the ground.They spread to other cave systems by using a modified version of this feeding structure to latch seed pods onto larger beasts.
>>4185081Stabgrass is essentially a silverfruit globelisk offshoot which never grows to maturity, but instead grows in a carpet of tiny silver spires. It still produces tiny, bitter-sweet silver fruits.
>>4185107Some Green Drills follow their food downstream, where soon they find themselves in an unfriendly, icy environment where no globelisks grow, only the occasional frog shrub, from which the, now smaller, Gray Drill gets it's color.
>>4185107Other green Drills following the rivers end up in the desert, where food is so scarce they suffer dwarfism. Relying on the few nutrients found in the soil, the new Brown Drill finds itself alone in a desolate wasteland.
>>4185593Due to it's large size and slow movement speed, the Butcher Lur often finds itself unable to catch it's prey and thus starves to death. As a result, the surviving members have developed Black Scales to blend in with the environment.The Black Butcher Lurs patiently lie in wait for squirt fleeders, until they are too close to escape.
>>4185939Having to constantly find new ways for it's young to survive, the Lurossus has developed small cones on it's head with which they can feel vibrations in the air, enabling them to hear when their brood is being attacked.
>>4186100Some maces develop deformed skulls, leading to their side-shovels growing larger and curving inward, increasing the weight on their heads.
>>4185811Their new found mobility has granted the purple drills unprecedented success for their kind, leading to an explosion in numbers. Because of that, many have developed far larger ribs, which they exclusively use for stepping.
>>4185811other purple drills use their mobility not only to hunt but also cross obstacles that would otherwise be impossible to traverse.Spending a lot of their time around and even in rivers, some purple drills have begun hunting for paddle fubals in the shallower parts of the rivers, causing the Orange Drill to live a more amphibious lifestyle.
>>4186825I forgot to mention, they are able to hunt paddle fubals because they developed rudimentary depth perception, which is why they know the fubals are there to begin with
>>4174594 The goldenfruit dome is an adaptation of the silverfruit globelisk to live in the southern tundras. Recovering its spherical form to conserve heat and humidity against the freezing winds on the southern pole, the goldenfruit dome is most of its life almost buried in snow, developing towards a thicker bark to survive. The change in its fruit is meant for it to grow quick just before the warm season, so grazers can see it and eat it as fast as possible and carry the seed to new grounds (the soil isn't very rich and clusters of these plants would not survive near each other)
>>4183916With the finding of food requiring more and more brainpower due to the increased amount of crowing of the various underwater herbivorous niches, the Fubatee has evolved a larger brain in order to better recognize things such as disguised predators and prime feeding grounds. In addition, a mutatitive growth has grown out of the sensitive pores that once covered the Fubatee's snout, combining into a single fleshy tentacle that the Fubatee now uses to manipulate its surroundings and better search for food.
>>4183916With the large number of Lurworms that fill the sandy river and ocean landscapes that the generalist Fubatees have spread throughout, the snout of the Fubatee has become more sensitive and longer. A reduction in gut size also occurs due to a reduction in the amount of globs consumed, no longer needing as many chambers to its stomach to digest food. Eyesight has also improved, growing more used to looking down at the sand as the SCANNER FUBATEE searches for food.
>>4184832With an increased amount of predation and crowding within cave systems, those Fubatees that can still see somewhat head out of the caves. The first of these two groups head back to the ocean, where they transform into BELLOWER FUBATEES. Known for the loud bellows that they scream outwards to signify territory, the Bellower is a highly territorial creature. With their newfound claws found on their flippers they regularly rip and tear at one another, older Bellowers being covered in scars from many bouts. Bellower Fubatees feed themselves by occasionally heading into the water to much on Devlic reef residue, which they chip off with their pickaxe like claws, or by mere bubblegrass browsing.
>>4184832The other group of Cave Fubas head deeper inland, developing more developed flippers that can actually be called legs now! In addition, these newly dubbed FUBLOATS have grown in size and serve the role of one of the largest herbivores on the mainland. Mainly solitary, the Fubloats hang out in marshes and river systems where they soak up water during the day and then head out at night to feed on the abundance of glob based life.
>>4185907Some of these inhabit the coldest and deepest seas in the world, and have developed some fur in their exposed flesh, and due to the lack of predators, they lost some eye vision and are generally careless, wich also gave them clearly brighter coloration to attract mates in the distance even with their poor eyesight. The problem is, that these fubal rhinos are still ocassionally cannibals, so the fubals have to meditate if they want to approach another fubal and try mating or avoid being devoured.
>>4186825After a rapid increase in evolution, the Orange Drill has transformed into the new UNIDRILL. Developing hooves of bone on the tip of each of its now proper legs, the Unidrill becomes one of the most widespread predators on Xeola. Being a generalist hunter that hunts Fleeders to Grazers to even other Lurs, the Unidrill fills the niche of the generalist land predator that the Shellurs have mostly abandoned.
>>>4165753Tunneled Tumor Tree are being product of the evolutive pressures of the multiple fubals devouring tumor trees, and the vortmonkeys being the only thing that scares them away of eating the tree in its entirety. As result of this, some tumor trees connect with each other, not only to share nutrients in a mutualistic relationship, but to help connect individual vortmonkeys, facilitating mating and so having more vortmonkeys protect them. The tunnels hardly allow an adult vortmonkey, but they allow communication and infantile vortmonkeys escaping with its other parent if the one nurturing it its attacked or deceased.
>>4185820Some variants known as Snowball Shrubs become much thicker, providing better insulation in cold environments.
>>4185820One particular variant, known as the Cotton Candy Tree, grows even bigger and grows thicker roots to collect more nutrients.
>>4186816Being stationary all the time has caused some Butchers to develop black skulls and dark grey skin, to mimic a fallen globelisk.
>>4186614Running into the issue of few creatures wanting to risk injury over some tiny bitter fruits, Stabgrass has evolved into newly dubbed GLOBETROPS. Globetrops are taller in order to stick out more with larger fruits sticking atop their stems, with the hard steel-like outer layer of the grass turning rather flexible so that herbivores can step on it before the plant then springs right back up. Vents also appear along the shafts of the Globetrops, allowing for photosynthesis to be possible and for the glob based lifeform to refuel its fruits nearly twice as fast. This Globetrop grass quickly spreads throughout Xeolia due to a large lack of predation, with most herbivores deciding to instead simply eat the fruits and spread its spores instead of harming the grass stalks themselves.
>>4186989In the colder regions, the snowball shrubs lose height to conserve humidity and heat, going back to its strong root system to hold back its delicious parts in some way. Also it now has hairs in the upper roots to give some insulation and the head is even silkier than before, very delicious and light, almost like a cloud. These are the coldcloud shrubs.
>>4186603To more easily lure in prey, colonial webs develop sweet-looking, sweet-smelling, and sweet-tasting fruit known as Blood Grapes.
>>4185711The Decimator Shellur becomes the absolute river predator, specializing its form in the stationary way of life. Its way shorter than its ancestor, with only 8 strong legs plus its 2 hooks. This allows to suport itself over the two sides of the rivers, between rocks, etc. Its eyesight coalesced into 4 eyes, specialized in depth and predation, with different adaptation to different levels of light. In order to survive fubatee attacks, its neck is less vulnerable, and it moves less that ints predecessor, but now has a reaction time about half than before, being very dangerous for a fubatee to approach an apparently distracted Decimator to attack.
>>4183269Satan's Pubes have adapted to absorb the massive amounts of hallucinogens in the ocean, give a HORRIBLE MIND-BREAKING TRIP to any animal foolish enough to ingest them.
>>4186960Some fubatees migrathe to colder south, and devour both all the new cold flora and many >>4185716 and the occasional >>4186970who swims too close to the frozen coastline. These fubatees have some changes in coloration, some triangular teeth to a complete change into omnivore diet, but still have some problems with the heat loss (even with all their fat) and the extreme salinity of the south sea.
>>4184819The Bile Crawlers develop into three distinct lineages, each adapted to deal with the Purple Lurs in their own way;The Shielded Crawler develops small plates at the edges of it's shell, which interlock once the pack converges into a sphere, making piercing them much harder. They also no longer smell as unbearably foul, as their sludge glands go unused in their ball form and thus begin to atrophy.
>>4184819The Flinging Crawler has repurposed one of it's leg-tongues into a catapult of sorts, hurling rotting sludge at aggrieving Lurs; while the projectile moves way too slow and is way too goopy to deal any damage, the toxic concoction of bacteria inside it is another matter entirely; a single shot from the catapult can cause a full-grown Lur to keel over from infection in a matter of hours
>>4184819The Cave Crawler has moved to the caves so that it can avoid Purple Lurs entirely. It has gotten a bit smaller than it's ancestors, and has grown sensitive hairs to navigate in the low-light conditions.
>>4184819Some of the bilers just try luck going back to the cold seas. These one have a modified shell with a gas bubble that gives them flotability when grouped in a ball, these ones are just a bit more individualistic and only roll in a ball to cross the ocean and go fishing. The usually pick the fruits of >>4185686 with the new clawed tips of its tentacles (still quite weak but enough to pull a shell like the one of this fruit) and they also feed on carrion that arrives on the shoreline, all the time, being passive scavengers 80% of the time and going on the sea only when food is scarce or is mating time.
>>4185768The Fishing Fleeder, now that it’s being hunted even more, needs to eat as much as possible and as quickly as possible to survive, thus increasing the range of its preys. For this reason, the fishing Fleeder has lengthened its tail and made stinger look like its covered in tasty moss, making it a perfect lure. To see its preys and predators better, they improved their pretty shitty eyesight, complementing the still present sentinel behavior
>>4185051The Soggy Fubatee develops the ability to sweat, and boy does it sweat. This creature leaves a moist trail wherever it goes, using it as lubricant for it's fragile and sensitive underbelly.It also develops a large throatsack, used for both vocalizing and storing food.
>>4185686Some stripeberry globs get stranded on the unforgiving polar glaciers. Most die, but a few manage to hang onto life, setting their roots down into the coastal water to soak up nutrients and distribute fruit. While not the most glamorous of existences, it is much safer than floating in the currents, beset by herbivores from all sides.
>>4187293The worms try to not die creating an entire cocoon to insulate themselves of the cold, only leaving an specialized photosynthetic bulb outside the silk. Even with that, light is scarce, and the waters are still high in salts, so its roots are slowly becoming harder with more "lumps" to filter the salt.
>>4187324nope. you should know better than this by now
>>4186824in a stunning case of convergent evolution, purple drills have developed protective hooves made out of bone at the tip of their legs, similar to their orange cousins.
>>4186825some orange drills are born with their ribs partially merged together. Unable to use them as legs anymore, the orange drills use them as little rudders instead to roam the surfaces of rivers.Now solely relying on hunting other river dwellers, orange lurs develop red and yellow color cones in their eyes, to more easily spot their prey.
>>4185820Other variants have started to in areas with a bit of incline (usually on the borders of mountains), and have grown deeper roots as a result.
>>4186815In the desolate desert where nothing lives, not even plants, the Brown Drill stands alone, trying to survive.Perpetually malnourished from eating dirt and no water around to as much as exist, the Brown Drills return to their roots, having developed a powerful neck muscle that engulfs the entire head.This muscle grants the Brown Drills the phenomenal ability to turn their heads 160° to either side in quick succession, causing a pseudo-rotation which let's them bore into the ground, both to find shade and the occasional drop of groundwater.
>>4183417Lousy swimmners, the lesser vortmonkey is an incredibly quick and adept climber, with dextrous dual-tipped tentacles and additional suction cups on wrists and a sort of "knee" on their shortened tail. They are a common sight in tunneled tumor trees, and some settle in other such glob-trees when the tunneled variety is not abundant enough or they are displaced.
>>4184854Some of these spores are able to endure the digestive enzymes of those who consume them, being deposited further and further away during migrations; this eventually leads to some of them settling in the only seas yet largely untouched by Devlic Reef contamination: the polar oceans. There, the reefs hardiest to the cold survive, remaining relatively short and squat due to a relatively-harsh environment but producing great plumes of smog from their stacks in response to the wealth of untapped minerals.
>>4184757Some Jack-of All- Leapers leave the no longer safe caves permanently losing their tails but gaining some hair to better protect them against the cold. The Hairy Jacks are slightly bigger
>>4187376With it's leg sets malformed into single, round limbs, the orange river drill is now completely unable to traverse land and is largely stuck to the surface of the water. Though it can dive, it cannot breathe underwater.Though the Galley Drill is quite agile and manages to catch a kill or two, it still has many shortcomings
>>4187407Spending all of it's time underground the Brown Drill begins to accumulate many minerals on it's scales that turn them into a shining silver color.Though it is now slightly tougher, it has no need for adaptation.
>>4185091The Click-Clack Leaper has developed the ability to echolocate by clacking its teeth together. This way it can make its home in the Dark Zone, where absolutely no surface light reaches and where no Fuba dares to venture. The Click-Clack Leaper will only leave the safety of the Dark Zone to forage for food, which it will bring back to its young in its mouth.
>>4186819To support it's gargantuan size, the Blue Lurossus develops a network of bones to support his body, giving it a yet unrefined skeleton.With this adaptation, the Lurossus manages to live up to it's name and become a behemoth so massive that no predator can hope to take on an adult of it's kind.Lurossi consume entire shrubs in a single day, leaving little food for competing herbivores.
>>4187859Through constant contact with and accidental absorption of minerals and micronutrients, the Brown Drills have developed a digestive acid so powerful that it breaks down rock and metal particles, enabling them to digest and survive off of them. As a result, their bone and scale makeup changes considerably, now also including small amounts of zinc and iron, decreasing wear and tear on the entire body.
>>4183469Some relic populations of microlurs held on in the safety of aquarium globelisks and their self-contaiend ecosystems... But when green drill lurs found their way inside, that time was at an end. Rapidly outcompeted, their role has now been replaced by Albino Drill Lurs, tiny dwarfs with powerful and hardened drills who can swim and tunnel with great flexibility.
>>4185684The Grazer, facing pressure from other herbivores and deciding to spread out all across the continent as the medium level herbivore niche have rapidly diversified. First among these is the SHELLED GRAZER. The shell of the Grazer has grown to be larger and more rotund, better deflecting blows from Shellurs that attack them. In addition their head grows longer and stronger, with them capable of chewing up and swallowing the entire Globetrop plant. They are even capable of digesting it to a degree thanks to a multi chambered stomach, though their poop ends up being littered in glasslike shards as a result. The Shelled Grazers also develop additional markings and protective layering on the tips of their feet.
>>4185684Meanwhile, other grazers opt for a larger and more independent lifestyle. Finding refuge in the large Obelisk forests, there the FRILLED GRAZER survives as the primary browser of the region. They often get into spats with shellurs of the regions, especially Harpoon Shellurs, developing a thick selective armoring and a neck frill to help protect their vulnerable neck. This species also develops hooves to prevent constant injury from Globetrops
>>4185684Lastly of the Grazer diversifications are the STUDDED GRAZERS. Seeing only a slight increase in size when compared to their cousin species, the Studded Grazer have their shell reduced in size and replaced with thicker studs that are meant to break up attacks and protect from serious damage. One of the Studded Grazer's arms have also moved up its body as well, developing hooked claws that are used for fighting for mates, scaring away predators, and scratching itself. Claws also develop on the bottom of each leg to assist with the constant Globetrop issue. These Studded Grazers additionally see an increase in intelligence, forming basic herds to help with protection and to help guard their vulnerable eggs. Living within wetlands due to having thinner skin, the Studded Shellurs often gather around Fubloats for protection in little herds.
>>4187013Some of these trees settle in shallow parts of rivers and wetlands. These water faring trees have been dubbed "Marsh Mellows".
>>4184461Some Tribalisk Canopy Fleeders develop a second fin, at first merely an impressive display structure... But, in time, capable of being tilted downwards to enable them to glide and slow their falls from the canopy. They also still flare them out to startle predators who catch them on the ground, or big red leapers who come upon them in their roosts. Their stores of acid and poison are smaller so as to keep weight down, however, and their stinger is somewhat impeded by a foldable fin on their tail.
>>4183285Migrant Fleeders are paler, shorter-horned, broader-finned descendants of longlegged fleeders who travel up and down the coast, even to the far north; in colder climes, they grow a thick coat of cotton-candy coloured fleece, to match the hairy purple coating on their gut (where their young cling during travel). They grow larger, especially those packs which live further north and stay there longer each year. With the fleece obscuring their signalling fins, they modify their acid sacks into multicloloured communication organs.
The world has become a very changed place since the great extinction. For one thing, shrubs and mats of settler vines have supplanted many grasses, while other bubblegrass varieties have begat shrubbery. Devlic reefs dominate the ocean from pole to pole, but animals seem to be adapting to their longstanding presence.
>>4188612Lurs remain amazingly adoptable, dominating all sorts of niches from three distantly-related lineages of symbiotes, to new parasite lines, to the drill lurs. shellurs, and of course fubals who dominate much of the land and sea.
>>4188618Flaps exist exclusively in highly-derived forms at this point, so much so that to call them "flaps" has almost lost meaning; only vortfish even flapped at all, until one line of fleeders re-evolved gliding and justified the name! Now caves are full of leapers, plains abound in fleeders, coastlines bear witness to those dread bile rollers and their composite creatures, and vortmonkeys guard teh ancient tumor trees at sea.
>>4187028Getting squashed by the occasional Lurossus slithering by, some Globetrop spores have found their way inside small gaps between the creature's scales and rooted in their moisture-retaining skinplates, growing into small patches of grass on top of the Lurossus.It's size however, remains the same.
>>4186603Some colonial nets grow barbs on their lower vines to grab onto by passing animals even easier
>>4186983Merging together over thousands of years, the Tunneled Tumor Trees have finally united into the mighty Globcier. A collective blob of various cancerous tumors living in harmony with one another, both the lifespan and size of these Tumor glaciers are indefinite. As the older globs die new ones grow along their outside, the entire structure gradually expanding at a slow pace. These plants can grow to absolutely massive sizes, some even being pseudo islands in their own right, with their rotten dead interiors forming into a pile of petrified buoyant rot that helps to keep the structure afloat as it sails along the open ocean.
>>4165753Meanwhile, the more individual Tumor Trees have run into the issue of being bullied out of the ocean and ending up washed up on shorelines. These globs develop tougher outer cases and hardened flexible roots to allow them to grow on land. Thusly the Stitch Tree is born! Having a complicated form of reproduction, the Stitch Tree starts with a single tumor glob. This glob has a hole with roots sticking out of it with sensitive tasters on the tips. There they feel around for other globs, tying them together with tight wrapping before then hardening up. These tied together globs form columns before eventually shooting out a curtain of roots that absorb sunlight and help to grow new globs out of their strands with the nutrients gathered from the bottom colum globs. Thusly these globs fall downwards and the process repeats.
>>4185081Expanding their ability to grow fruit and seeds more and more the Silverfruit Globliths have transformed into Glowing Globeliaths. Opening up vents on the side of their massive shafts, the Globeliaths These shafts glow a bright green color that absorbs sunlight and emits a harsh smell/taste that dissuades others from eating the inside of the vents. Instead, the Glowing Globeliaths develop much more numerous spikes that produce equally glowing fruit that shower the ground beneath them in bright green berries
>>4183417With the apparition of tumor glaciers the possibilities for predation expand for the vortmonkeys, some of the relying much more on their tail, making it longer, stickier and resembling the tumor globs of its home. Many fubals are deceived and then pulled inside the glacer where they are usually shared by a few monkeys and its progeny. They have some clawed "fingers" not for attack, but to hold on their position while they pull. These are vortail fishers
>>4183121The devilic slapper likes two things: devilic fumes and ocean floor dwelling lurs. Eyes were totally unnecessary to this, and so they were discarded, feeling with its mouth until evolutive pressure favored the apparition of feeler barbs in its jaw to seek for the worms while being far enough to not be ambushed by the larger kind of malurs. Their pectoral fins now do something similar to their caudal fin, they remove the floor to search for worms and other detritus, but in this case, they developed an internal bone system in those fins, to give them rigidity and strenght enough to literally slap and stun prey and predator. This is gives him the name of devilic slapper.
>>4189165Globagodas have become much taller and have bigger fruits (called Jade Fruits) which contain more seeds.
Rolled 8 (1d8)ignore this
>>4183121One of the stranger offshoots of devilic fubas, is the devilic breeder. This fuba is so small, it actually lives inside devilic reefs, his tolerance to its fumes being absolute. The breeder gets protection, nesting and some food from the reef (they prefer to eat the bubble grasses and satan pubes that compete with their home reef, because of this mutualistic relationship, but the reef is like 20% of their diet)The really weird part of this adaptation is how the loss of dorsal fins, left space for three egg sacs, where they carry devilic reef biggest spores, in a sac where they also carry their eggs or sperm. When the spawning season of the reefs comes, the breeders get their own mating season going, carrying some of the spores on their back, searching new territories, and other breeders, mixing their eggs, sperms and devilic spores, wich spawn both new breeder and a growing reef to protect them. The last days of the breeders after mating are spent protecting their child and the nascent new reef. They lost size and risk much, but gained in numbers and safe home. >>4184854
>>4183626Not all the leapers have gone living in caves or walking on two legs. These leapers just got longer, and evolved a curious reproductive system and the powerful legs, hips and tail to support it. The tail in the males is just for showing and balance, in some cases as an offensive whip attack. In females (as these species are no longer hermaphrodite as some of the bastard descendants were/are) their tail becomes and ovipositor in mating season, becoming bigger, but agile enough so its eggsac can be put in hidden and well protected places. These leapers care about their infants a lot and protect their nest with hoof, tooth and nails. Their back legs are now powerful enough to be very dangerous in close combat, its front arms are now slowly becoming something like hooves, due to these Megaleapers searching for harder and harder places to reach, so they can breed in peace.
>>4185686Silk satchel lurs descend from the shaker worms which found themselves washed ashore with their hosts in the poles ( >>4187293 ). Their silk has become more wool-like, thick and insulating. They cannot endure the worst temperatures of their extreme new environment outside of their nest, but will venture beyond in warmer months and times of day to snatch up whatever food their new, crude electro-chemical sensor ball can detect and drag it back to the nest in a wad of silk attached to teh end of their tail; their scaly stomach also secretes a trail for their fellows to follow, so these tiny guys can work fast to stock up a larder for harsher times. This keeps both their host plant and their own species alive and well-fed.
>>4187013These trees grow small pods.They pop and pink seeds rain down.They float with petals.
>>4189381>>4186614The Globagodas develop small nooks at their base, their ceilings covered with symbiotic Stabgrass, perfectly safe for the shelled Bile Crawlers yet dangerous to the tender skins of Purple Drills. The Crawlers seek refuge here, and coincidentally tend to stay long enough to leave some nutritious dung, which the Globagoda is eager to consume.
>>4189423Tanning Megaleapers continue to dwell in hard-to-reach places, but find themselves especially well-adapted to lakeshore living or burying into aquarium globelisks. They crawl out at the brightest and warmest points of the day to suntan, however. They have concentrated in their increasingly scaly, specialized stripes, fin, and tail tip the sun-absorbing chemical compounds of the globs, and now use this to supplement their diet. Their bodies have grown wider and flatter, as have their tails, and they now move relatively little once they have found a comfortable home; instead, they kick aggressors hard in the face, slap with their tail, and then dive into their hidey-holes. Their mouths have moved closer to the weaponized rear of their body, as well, to aid in defence.
>>4189423The FrogLeaper is an evolution of the MegaLeaper that has grown a long sticky tongue to help it catch prey from a distance
>>4189505Some of these grow very strong legs, changing some of their leap force for the ability of running (in ver short bursts due to lack of stamina) and having the ability of very powerful kicks, that stun the creature before enveloping them with thir linear mouth on their stomachs. These are called simply Tanned Megakickers
>>4189475Some globagodas find that their stabgrass is supplanted and replaced by blood grape-bearing colonial webs, carried there on tanning megaleapers. Unlike the stabgrass, the blood grape webs hardly change at all, simply treating the globagoda like any other cave and ensnaring the hapless roller colonies who roll into their homes believing them to be sanctuaries.
>>4189532Bluebeard ForgLeapers have shifted their mouths forwards over generations to make better sue of their tongues they have also formed a muscular lower "jaw" reaching almost down to their crotch, which they can expand into a wide pouch to ensnare and suffocate whatever they catch with their tongues. These jaws are lined with small teeth, tearing apart anything which struggles.
Rolled 1 (1d2)one more roll
>>4189505Other tannings just evolve his frill and scale stripes to develop all over his back, improving his photosynthesis capabilities, and changing its claws for hooves in all extremities. This makes the Hoofed Megaleaper prefer the mountains and hills where he has advantage to ambush and to be left alone just soaking in the sun.
>>4187218The Shielded Crawler, loosing less liquid from constant leaking, has been able to venture further and further inland. The farther they venture away from the coasts the more they run into their mortal enemy..... inclines. In order to solve this issue the newly dubbed BILE WALKER has come into existence. Capable of unrolling itself to walk on tentacle legs for short periods of time, the Bile Walker is much more mobile than its other cousins. To prevent all of its guts from falling out every time it stands up, the Bile Roller has expanded its plates to involve a thin layer of biological netting that helps to protect its tentacles and goop from just flooping out every time it unrolls itself.
>>4187218Other Shielded Crawlers develop individual floating organs, useless as individuals, but as a ball, they lessen their weight enough to use their tentacles to leap and even slow their fall a little. This is the Bouncing Crawler and its slightly lighter and smaller than its predecessor.
>>4187218In a strange sort of convergent evolution the Shielded Crawlers, just like the Flinging Crawlers, learned how to fling with their tentacles; but while the Flingers threw their own shit at people, the Shielders are more civilized and content themselves with using rocks as ammunition. What do they throw it at, you ask? Well, at the entrances of Globagodas, of course, to see whether they're taken by the benign spikegrass or the treacherous blood grapes! Why don't they just use their fucking eyes to see if the entrance is covered by straight grey spines or green meshes with conspicuous red bulbs, you ask? Well, because their eyesight has not improved ever since they were rotten masses of cancer and is still complete shit, of course!And also sometimes you're getting pursued and the only route of escape is a blood grape globagoda so it's better to throw a rock at the net and cause it to curl around it buying you a brief chance of passing through than to let yourself get chomped by whatever's chasing you.
>>4189556Bluebelly Leapers reminded the world how nothing normal could be expected from descendants of the bastard hordes. The tongue of this creature is fused with its stomach, being already dripped in acid and around 60 cms out of the body. A big belly has developed to hold all that tongue near the mouth.
>>4187350Faced with the issue of having to crack open some rollers first before being able to slurp up their insides, a few purple drills have developed powerful muscles around it's head, which enable it to simply stand in place, pulling it's face back and forth with great force, brutishly pecking away at it's victim.
>>4187218The Zoom Rollers develop microscopic hairs on their tenta-tongues for latching onto surfaces. This allows them to more quickly propel themselves forward by grabbing onto the ground with their arms.
pausing evolution for now working on a post. ya can go back to evolving afterwords

The age fo the truely towering tumour tree has ended . The remaining plants that are in this world are its many smaller relatives and the many descendants of the craggy globs which have taken over the land. the seas are full of the may smaller glob species . the flaps have gained some diversity since the last extinction but still remain small compared to the numorus lurs>>4191260 Decimator Shellur>>4189473 gumdrop tree>>4189538 Globgoda>>4187293 Polar stripeberry globs>>4189719 Flinging shielded crawler>>4187028 Globetrops>>4189755 Bluebelly leapers>>4186958 Scanner fubatee>>4189444 Silk satchel>>4186585 Spiny Vorthfish>>4186960 Bellower fubatee>>4187974 Studded Grazer>>4187154 Satan's pubes>>4188577 Dragon fleeders (as i call them)>>4187580 Devlic reef>>4190095 Devil bongs>>4186822 Maces>>4189836 Purple drill>>4187929 Albino drill>>4174594 Globliths>>4187909 Brown drills>>4186064 Samurai lur>>4187870 Click-clak leapers>>4183189 Frog shrubs>>4187253 Fishing fleeders
>>4191427Happy Easter, too!
>>4187028Following the extinction of the majority of glob based life on Xeolea, the Globetrops have diversified throughout the globe. In the fertile plains of Xeolea the abundance of nutrients has led to Globetrops greatly increasing the amount of fruits they can create. Developing more branches with the purpose to holding these new berries, Globetrops soon spread out into any soil that can sustain their high nutritional needs.
>>4187028Meanwhile, in regions with poor nutrients such as wetlands, coastlines, and cave systems, the Globetrop has had to take a different approach. Risking their seeds being fully digested, the SPINY GLOBETROP has opted to cover their fruit in hooked spikes. These spikes hopefully stick onto creatures that pass by, eventually either dropping off and being grown or weighing down the unfortunate mobile creature to such a degree that it collapses and becomes fertilizer in its own right. Being unappetizing towards any herbivore without the proper gastric requirements, the Spiny Globetrop has spread out into the less fertile regions of the globe.
>>4187028Lastly are the LEAFY GLOBETROPS, finding their home in the hot deserts and savannahs of Xeolea. Developing leaves that are better able to radiate heat from their metallic stalks, the Leafy Globetrop can make the most of the untouched soil and sun of these hot regions.
>>4187154SATAN'S SACKS grow direct on top of Devil Reefs and Devil Bongs, growing much smaller nutrient pores on the outside while it's hallucinogen pores grow larger to prevent them from popping.
>>4187909With more minerals in the ground than ever before, the Brown Drills thrive, having access to ample food supplies. With their increase in size it becomes apparent that their excrement is highly nutritious for other organisms, and their presences enriches the soil of the desert.With an increase in sizes also comes larger eggs. No longer able to effortlessly defecate and birth through a shared cloaka, the Brown Drill develops a small opening at the end of it's tail, connected to it's digestive tract, whereas the old cloaka is now a separate but unspecialized birth-canal.
>>4186958The devil cleaner has evolved to fill that cursed niche around the devil reefs, feeding on them, changing its colouration, and developing some immunity. But with the apparition of >>4191471 its food is dying, and so the Cleaner starts eating satan's grass in general, redeveloping several gut chambers, doing an overall slow digestion. But this is not enough to treat the toxins of satan's pubes or sacks, and so, the tip of the nose of the cleaner can pick lumps of these types of plants. Its feeding modus operandi is picking lumps of satan's sacks until its dead and the reef clean, the lumps of the sacks floating around as the cleaner feeds of the unparasited reef. Then, after a few minutes the satan's sacks lose some of their toxicity and the cleaner eats those lumps that didn't float away. These indicates a development in intelligence.
>>4186958The Fubir sacrificed size, eyes, and everything it had to do, to specialize in their favored prey: marine lurrs. Specifically albino drill and mace lurrs. Its two remaining eyes moved to its head, its nose became trunks; longer and even more sensitive and flexible, with fewer prey, the skill to detect lurrs from dozens of meters is essential to the survival of the fubir. As is its speed so the worms can retaliate with its bony heads. The fubir focus on the development of its head over anything, so it can find the scarce food its left after the hit.
>>4186585The vortjet has a radical change of plans, since there are basically no filter feeders, its mouth is easily adapted to feed on devil and satan plankton and other floatins debris. It gets smaller, losing a fin, and changing the way it swims, since it doesn't need to look to the floor anymore, but to its sides and the currents. The change in its mouth also made changes in its rear and suction tail, wich now is more important to move than to capture anything, expulsing some of the water that the vort filters. This gives him his name, the vortjet.
>>4186585other vortfhfish just lose so much of its size, with so little food around, they become parasitic, sticking with its (now toothed) suction tail and its modified mouth (wich is almost a copy of its tail) to the devil cleaners, fubirs or scanner fubatees that remain, sometimes even in particulary big mace lurrs. To this end they have a very sensitive eye (only one, the other is lost) wich they use to ambush a host while it waits in the sand. These are the vortwounds
>>4187974Becoming much more generalist, the Flex Grazer has developed tougher skin suitable for drier environments. Additionally, its arms have become bigger and stronger to defend against predators.
>>4191516Some Vortjets gain fins on their sides for better steering.
>>4187154Angel tears are an special kind of satan pube, growing its leaves longer, with little globs full of their spores, and and a substance that partly neutralizes the neurotoxin of reefs and satan's sacks. The main body is still as toxic as its cousin's, but thanks to their sporefruits being picked first, they reproduce faster than their cousins. Also, some of the more intelligent animals, just leave the main body intact. In part because few animals can digest the toxins of satan's pubes, sacks or these ones, in part because some understand that the sporeberries of these plants are too valuable to stop the growing of more, and grow just around the devil reefs. This seem to be the behaviour of the Devil Cleaner. These are the Angel Tears.
>>4191516Facing no competition or predation, the Vortjet goes through a massive state of ocean gigantism and increased efficiency. Developing a larger vertical mouth that can open and close for increased water flow, the intake of various microlurs and microglobs becomes quite fruitful. To help propel its greatly increased girth the newly dubbed VORTERANG, named after its now singular horn, has developed four vent pumps that propel it through the water. With muscled valves in the front of its body, these draw in water with muscular contractions before pressurizing it within the lengthy tube that runs down its body before violently expelling it outwards. Vorterangs are known to let out low groans as well as they move through the ocean, simplified vibration receptors being developed on the front of their singular horn to help detect potential mates in the wide open red sea.
>>4170278Devlic Reefs are corked off by the likes of Statan Sacks that stem their bellowing fumes. Because of this a majority of reefs are unable to reproduce as their spores are carried out by their fumes and what little can escape through the sacks aren't capable of spreading far. As such the only members of the species are the ones that unleash deluges of fumes the hardest, as the pressure shooting upwards is simply too seal. Members of the species that are sealed anyway tend to explode as pressure builds within their cores, causing the mineral walls of The Reef to blow off.
>>4191602Some of these Bellowing Devlic Reefs have grown to recognize that other creatures tend to hide, fight, and thrash about around their tough outer carapaces. This tends to result in gradual damage and destruction of a reef, with the Bellowing Devlic Reef having no real way to combat this. A strain that prioritizes a different mental affect has seemed to somewhat solved this issue though. Behold the STONER REEF. Bellowing out a now green cloud of relaxing drugs, in contrast to the psychedelics of the Devlic Reef the Stoner reef seeks to settle down all of the large fighting creatures that love to attempt and bother them. This drug is more nutrionally challenging to produce, requiring some photosynthesis to permeate through the waves in order to help raise the spores that induce such an effect. Thusly these Stoner Reefs are only found in shallow waters, though they already appear to be inducing rapid change in the regions where they live.
as much as id love it to exist you doubled up>>4191631>>4191622
>>4191634Those are two separate IDs.
>>4191640yes im aware. the rules is for all double ups on a line
>>4191520The Vortwound undergoes an evolutionary spurt as its diet begins to consist of high amounts of concentrated Devlic Drug. Some of the buds along their facial plate begin to tingle and bulge, growing thicker neuron clusters that instead of rejecting the chemical compounds in the fumes, use it as the mediator chemical for their brain's chemistry. They develop a higher degree of intellect despite their small size, as they begin to travel in schools and have the power to form judgement about which hosts they wish the school to cling upon.
>>4187870Facing danger from >>4191458 ,the Click-clack Leaper's echolocation is now able to work in water, where Globetrops can't grow.
>>4189538The Blood Grape Webs start secreting an antibiotic solution out of their grapes, as their favored prey, the Bile Rollers, are pretty grody creatures and tend to carry numerous strains of potent bacteria. This incidentally makes them highly sought after by injured drills and fleeders, as these fruit can quickly sanitize a wound. The drills and fleeders, of course, often end up tangled up and eaten.
>>4191424You forgot the spike globagodas, they got an 8 in >>4190145
>>4191699i appear to have thought it was the other varient which survived. whoops. you can evolve this too
>>4191602Some of these Bellowing Devlic Reefs have grown to recognize that other creatures tend to hide, fight, and thrash about around their tough outer carapaces.

Thusly these Stoner Reefs are only found in shallow waters, though they already appear to be inducing rapid change in the regions where they live.>>4191634Ok here's it a second time then
>>4187097Being uncontested once more in the apex carnivore niche, the Decimator Shellur adapts to its new environment and prey. With grazers being the primary prey that is snacks upon nowadays, the newly dubbed STALKER SHELLUR sees less and less reasons to care about speed at all. Slow and deliberate on its circular set of claw feet, the Stalker shellur will stalk herds of Studded Grazers from afar. Seeing an increase in intellect, the Stalker is capable of superb pattern recognition, capable of recognizing ideal ambush positions where it will spring out and grasp onto its prey with its highly nimble claws.
>>4187974Facing increased predation, the Studded Grazer furthers its deterrents against Shellurs whom would love to eat them alive. Growing longer, the set of arms that the Grazers have grown a thick flap of leathery skin between them, with the Studded Grazer extending and flapping them about to scare away predators. This is especially effective when the entire herd makes their famous low squeaking sound while they flap their arms at their enemies. Should this fail and the Studded Shellur is caught out on its own it has developed a secondary form of defense. Growing a lengthy tail to attach to its fake head, the Grazer will imitate it as its real one with wiggling and eating motions. This tail does not regrow, serving as a one time escape card, but it has saved many a grazer thus far.
>>4191424The humble beginnings of Epoch 5
>>4191424With increasingly hard and pointy terrain on land and ever-more-toxic seas, flaps have their work cut out for them.
>>4191424...But lurs are, as always, doing just fine, essentially dominating many niches including the top of the food chain.
>>4189478>>4189473Some gumdrop trees begin to release their seeds only when trigegred by especially high winds. These seedlings then use a simple light-detecting organ and minor penumatic control of their wings to keep themselves airborne for as long as possible, to increase spread range.These are Peach Gumdrop Trees.
The fishing Fleeder, now that the shellurs are even more dangerous and there is even more food lying around, has returned to sporadically hunting the bile rollers once more, developing an even more toxic blood and increasingly powerful acid. To run away/around the slow moving stalkers it has also also hated its legs, now moving much faster and hunting even better in its large packs
Sorry I forgot to link the previous evo and I forgot to say that the new Fleeder is called “hunter Fleeder”>>4191901>>4187253
>>4186064The Sunhat Sumurai Lur's "hat" now rests upon its upper back, allowing it to use secretions to form an adhesive seal against the wall of a globelisk or gumdrop tree. It then chews its way inside and feasts to its hearts' content, comfortable in the knowledge that it is incredibly difficult to prey off of the surface, especially with its sword-tail thrashing around wildly.
>>4191901gonna make a note here. youappear to have lost a leg. the leg wasnt visible in the previous evo but it should have 4
>>4191520Predatory Vortwounds are those who have evolved more powerful jaws and greater sizes, as well as powerful fins. They use these features to not just parasitize larger animals, but to take cookie-sized chunks out of them, and to eat their young and anything else small enough to catch.
>>4191915Could you run that by me again?
>>4187097The Persecutor has followed another way, of slowly searching in a world with less food, more prey. For this, he has lost part of his heavy armor (not a problem without fubatees and the biggest kind of leapers) and his front legs are bigger and stronger, giving this shellur more stamina that its predecessors. His favorite prey in caves are the echolocating leapers and some worm lurrs, and in the riverlands and jungles he prefers Bluebelly megaleapers and even bile rollers, if its true it tastes funny to the Persecutor.
>>4191958Like a weird barnacle or limpet, it adheres itself to a tough plant. It uses enzymes and effort to shove its head into the softer bits beneath the bark/shell, and eats plant matter inside, while its shell/hat thing protects it from predatory who might try to pry it off. It also can still stick its sword tail out to slash at anything that tries.
>>4186960Seeing a great decrease in land dwelling herbivores, the Futabees move further inland to occupy the massive mega herbivore niche. Though they are known to still occasionally eat carrion or eggs they find, they are for a large part plant eats now. To help with this their keratinous jaw has turned into a simple beak, with complex jaws allowing for the tough outer layer of Globetrops to be grinded into a grey paste. Speaking of paste, with no longer needing to really swim the rear tail and buoyant capacity of the FUSLIBEE have been reduced to mere atrophied body parts. Instead many of the muscles along its stomach have fused together, hence the name, into a powerful foot. Thick and resistant to puncturing, the Fuslibee secretes a thin layer of mucus from its underside to assist with movement. Now the largest herbivore on land, the Fuslibee's deep bellow can be heard across the planet.
>>4191561With a reach slightly higher than it's head, the Grabby Grazer has developed a handy opposable thumb for grabbing bigger chunks of food, especially from Gumdrop Trees. Additionally, they have grown slightly bigger.
>>4191990Oh, so like a snail! Thanks! Sorry to make you have to repeat yourself.
>>4186822The macers adapt in the new free niches created in the ocean. And they got addicted. While the devilic reef prove too strong to the common animal, this new stonereef attracts new fauna with ease. The Stone-Macers are adapted macers, with matching coloration to the reef and a set of new barbs appropiated to his new diet on reef spores, plankton in general and obviously, stoner fumes. Their metabolism is ridiciously slow, being easy prey but also being very efficient energetically.
>>4191672This inteligent vortwound develops a crippling addiction to the devil fumes he gets so little access when they attach to vorterangs >>4191594 Due to their physiological dependence, this creature synthetizes an imitation of the devil fumes, wich is highly addictive, making the vorterang go down to the deep to the ocean to get some devil fumes, this in turn, nourishes the Devil Dealer, who has to put less and less effort into making the vorterang go down for another hit.
>>4187154The Devil Filtering Grasses that classically littered the seabed are getting outclassed by their much better cousins, and as such some are forced to adapt to various niches. These being's habit of clinging onto different species becomes apparent as a class of barnacle-like spores grow onto the bodies of Vortjets, often spreading from one jet to the other during their spawning periods.These are known as Devlic Clingers.
>>4192241uh. these things appear to say they are taller than the. creature they cling to
>>4192241wait no im a dumbass everythings fine everythings just parasiting these things
>>4191508Seeing much of its Lur prey move to feed on the Stoner Reefs, the Fubir does the same. Getting stained green in the process, the Fubir takes on a very lax and slow moving stance towards life. Lazily swimming about and occasionally popping a macehead into its mouth, the CHILL FUBIR lives a laid back and easy life in the shallow seas.
>>4191751To keep the species near it alive and *relatively* healthy, some stoner reef fumes also function as a mild aphrodisiac.
>>4191672Seeing many of the spores in the ocean are going unfed upon, the Vortwound expands its diet and niche. Developing its teeth into a flat beak, the newly dubbed VORTCHOVIE forms into large swarms where they feet upon blobs of microglobs and reef spores. Being quite smart for a fish of its size, the Vortchovie will over move its swarm in confusing shapes that bend and fold in order to make predators eventually give up after getting a headache. In addition, these Vortchovies modify their gills to be capable of intaking fresh water as well, filling up the rivers as the primary swarming small herbivore.
>>4191901Woops, forgot this lineage was still alive. Will add it to >>4191813 next time it gets updated.
>>4187293The icesilk weed, previously declared illegal by god, evolves in epoch 5 insread, as the silk satchel worms and their greater production of heavier silk continues around the still-extant polar stripeberry globs.>>4187324I got you, anon! I liked that idea.
>>4189755The Fancy Leaper develops fancier colourations to signal mates, including a greening patch on their chest that only lights up when a chemical is triggered by arousal. Their colours are also more cryptic, only becoming as vibrant as in their forebears when threatened or aroused. All of this is tied to the development of an electrical organ in their epidermis, which in triggers these chromatic changes AND is focused in a pair of electro-chemical receptors in their cheeks, capable of detecting biological signals in the dark, the muck, or in smoggy areas out to sea. While they cannot endure the drug-addled oceans for long, these beings can pursue Vortchovies through rivers and into brackish estuaries.
>>4192263The fubir has little predation, plenty of food, and few motives to not grow big and fat, just elongatin his tail so it can serve to stun and sweep burrowing lurrs, strip reefs of its shell and takes care of whatever needs to be hit in general. Its seems males use it to compete between each others when the area is lacking in stoner reef and its obligued to hunt elsewere, and the males claim a territory as their own. Chill Oliphants don't like to lose their chill. Their jaw is slightly more generalist know because of simpler, but bigger teeth that can chew devil reef roots, slice lurr worms meat and even the occasional vorterang that annoys them too much in their territory. >>4192630Thanks
>>4192734Forgot the image
>>4192563The vassal vortchovie likes the fresh sprouts of satan that grows on infested vorterangs, and follows its trailer cleaning it of its proliferation and feeding of the jets of detritus that it leaves behind. Its relationship with the vorterang its almost symbiotic, but the vassalvortchovie can still be a hidrance to the vorterang feeding as they feed on basically the same things.
>>4192234The methods in which Dealic Vorts interact with their hosts becomes more advanced as they develop neuro-taps, which are tongues that sink into the skin of Vort hosts, and can control their behaviors by controlled releasing of chemicals. Schools of Dealics usually collectively cling onto one host and end out overriding their behaviors through constant neuro-tapping to cause them to keep near Devlic Reefs or attack predators.Dealic Taps predominantly work on fellow members of the Vort family due to similarities in bodily chemistry.
>>4187293The mutations in the silberry glob have been extreme. This one, left his root system away, specializing them in two internal functions: produce stripberry and generate gastric acid to wich the worms and their silk, are inmune. The worms fabricate long tendrils that act like the roots, but instead, they catch debris, minerals, plankton, and even larger prey like vortchovies and albino drill lurs. When the worms sense that a prey is catched or the tendril is heavy with microplankton and carrion, they vibrate in a way that pulls the silk tendril up, into the chambers of digestive acid of the plant, like an earth-carnivore plant. The silktrap glob prefers cold seas but can tolerate temperate shorelines and even some lakes. The silk of the worms is highly defective in freswater because of his composition.
>>4187870The life of a Leaper is hard.The inside of The Caves are shallow in food and high in danger still. It's time for The Clicks to search for better homes.Some subspecies of Leaper manage to leave their cave homes and find themselves squinting in the sun, developing narrower eye slits and less dilated eyes as they make their way into the mainland. Here, they cling to the walls of Globiliths high off the ground where they're safe from predators, using their underbelly mouth to bite into the Glob's walls and live its life sucking the nutrient innards out of the wall it clings to.
>>4192840You forgot its ears.
>>4192883It may be that those are small or subtly-coloured enough to be largely invisible in the Wall Frogs.
>>4189719Antisocial Crawlers no longer form roller-balls to escape from predators, as their relatives do, after a certain age. Instead, they continue to grow bigger, stronger, and more intelligent... But less social, and more aggressive. They spend much of their time up trees or globagodas, or wedges between rocks, waiting to ambush Dragon Fleeders or other small prey; when something larger finds them, they crawl away and throw stones, or use their muscular tentacles to smash their head-shields into it until it leaves them alone.
>>4192908question. so do the babies still form balls after ?
>>4192917Yes, up until they grow too big and uncooperative.
>>4191772The fake head growing on the tail of the Studded Grazers has evolved into a real secondary head. While losing the primary head is survivable the second head has trouble controlling the body on it's own due to being backwards and having a much more rudimentary brain, instead it mainly serves as a lookout for predators trying to sneak up from behind
return of the original hydra lur that had a head on each end and no tail . except with limbs
>>4192964Also a step towards lur-derived dragons.
>>4192964Didn't even think of that one instead I was inspired by Giraffarig
>>4189719With the best food out of their reach and globetrops not doing the thing, Bear Trap Rollers/Crawlers have become carnivorous. Their method of method of hunting is quite sneaky: laying teeth up flat on the ground, a horde of crawlers will throw a rock at a nearby animal so that it will walk towards the source of the rock. Once it gets close enough, the horde will quickly re-ball with the animal inside, shredding it all around its body with their teeth.
>>4192971galarian stunfisk? XD>>4192967also im pretty sure they are already dragons just with backwords wings. wait isnt there like a httyd dragon like it already :?
>>4192976That dragon had to front heads. One breathed flammable gas and the other sparked it.
>>4192981no not that one im not refering to the zippleback theres another one it had a tail head that was kinda completly fake. but looked really real i might be wrong ima go see if i can find it
actually im going to sleep its 2 am. so uh. ah it dosnt matter. httyd has a lot of cool dragons though
>>4189836Trapspringer Drills adapt to the beartrap rollers--actually capable of predating upon them, as with their smaller ancestors, by developing a continuously-growing tail. As it elongates, the last few segments lose feeling and blood-flow, becoming limp, spike-covered dead-weight... perfect to throw into a beartrap roller to spring it and simultaneously injure the composite crawlers. IT then commences to peck as many to death as possible before they can reform or crawl away to hide.They also gladly eat any other rollers or crawlers they come upon, which do not drive them off with rocks.
>>4192840Some other leapers graze upon the much less challenging meal of the Gumdrop Tree. On the very top of the tree, the Gumdrop Leaper literally eats out a home for itself, where it grows fat and happy from a lack of predation or competition.
>>4193033> a lack of predationAntisocial crawlers eat small prey and crawl up trees now.
>>4187909Venturing out of the desert and into different soil, some Brown Drills can't handle the stark difference in minerals and mineral distribution, causing horridly deformed off-spring, that are by some unholy miracle fertile.Having found it's dwelling underneath forests, the Double-headed Brown Drill can tunnel, defecate and birth through either end.
>>4187909Cripplingly dragging itself through the soil underneath the tundra, is the abominable Flail-tailed Brown Drill, with it's 3 horrific, fully functional tails.
>>4187909Most disgusting of all, is the Helix-shaped Brown Drill, with it's double-body twisting and contorting when pushing and pulling around the soilscape. This mistake of nature can be found under river beds and river shores, where it's activity has the most direct impact on the surface world, by (relatively) rapidly changing the course of rivers.
>>4193049Yeah I've got nothing for that.You can call extinctions on it if you want.
>>4193369Btw I was OP. I'm changing wifi currently so I'm under a different ID.
>>4193234>>4193220>>4193209Though separate species, the circumstance of their coming into being has left them genetically homogenous enough to interbreed.In the plains where all Mutant Drills intersect at some point, they would inevitably birth something more horrendous than either of them alone.The Abominable Brown Drill Hydra - or Hydrill for short.
>>4193369Probably just a thing to note--there's still LESS predators up there, and maybe they evolved prior to the coming of Crawlers into their lands.
>>4191495The cloakaless Brown Drills have a much better time adapting to the different soils and spread across the globe.Aiding them in this conquest are their grown-together ribs, forming a single powerful squish, which let's them move in greater bursts, enabling them to even break softer stones reliably. Earning them the title Rock Breaker Drills.
>>4189836In the biological arms race against it's prey, the Purple Drill develops several ways to cope with the increasing danger the rollers poseOne such development is a filtration gland on the drill's face that repurposes it's stomach acid into poison that slowly digests prey from the inside out, causing organ failure over time.They inject the poison through their drill before retreating to a safe distance, away from the hurtful rocks.This rather cautious behavior coincides with an increase in neural activity. The nerve-knots that previously constituted the Drill's "brain" have now formed a single, cohesive clump.
>>4193675oh wow that's fucking gay, the pic didn't postlemme try that again
>>4189836Others went for a more offensive approach, having developed 2 large, merged hindlegs that can support the Drill's entire body-weight, these drills hunt rollers with greater force than ever before. Briefly standing upright on their hindlegs and then plummeting forward drill-first, can create enough force to break away chunks of roller armor.Having greater processing power than their predecessors, makes it possible to gauge these attacks in the first place.
>>4189836The majority of the purple drill population developed a specialized supportive neck, with which they can perform their pecking attacks at greater speeds and with much more precisions.Though not fundamentally different from their cousins, these Drills have repurposed their symbiote-bonding ability into pack-bonding. Forming permanent groups of up to 5, these Drills overwhelm their prey with sheer numbers.
>>4192971Some crawlers grow bigger, stronger arm-tongues, enabling them to form even bigger tougher balls. Greater Crawler Hordes/Greater Rollers are very social beings, find strength in numbers more than anything. They have many different many different methods of hunting: volleying their prey with a shower of stones, charging and then gangbanging a single large prey, surrounding prey in several smaller balls. These creatures expertise in teamwork marks them as quite clever and quite dangerous.
>>4191999Resorting to simply HIDE from predators, the Ursa Grazer has chosen to lead it's life near caves. Only ever coming out to bring back food for itself and its young, the Ursa Grazer lives is always on alert.
>>4193872Additional Note: with the high amount of Spiked Globetrops in caves, the Ursa Grazer has learned how carefully to pick out each spike one by one.
>>4191679With only the finite Frog Shrubs to sustain them, some Click-Clack leapers have developed slightly sharper teeth for adding carrion to their diet. Sometimes, they will even eat a few of its own young and split the meat with the rest.
hopefully this works on mobile and powers out so no wifi
>>4193872Since their inhabitance of caves, Ursas have gone a few big changes. Firstly, their neck have a higher posture in order to give a better 180°. Secondly, their claws have gotten bigger, thicker, and sharper to better defend against predators. Lastly, they have developed hornlike protrusions on their heads with holes that function as their ears, allowing them to detect any nearby predators and then run away, only fighting back if they are in short enough distance.
>>4193499Having dug their way all the way into the oceanic crust, where the soil contains a higher amount of cobalt, has caused these Rock Drills to take on a deep blue color.Their great numbers have made their tunnels fragile and often collapse underneath their own weight. In some parts, the ocean has crushed the tunnels as well and flooded them.The ultimate result of hundreds of thousands of Rock Drills eating away at the ocean crust, is the collapse of their tunnels into a single gargantuan cave, cut off entirely from the surface world, save for a single river of ocean water, flowing into a hot lake.
>>4192677The fancy leaperslowly returns to the water, living in stuaries, getting bigger and only resting and mating in land. Not only his size and arms have changed due to his return to land. His electrorecerptors are the main reason this animal returns to hunting only in the waters. The electrorecerptors of the Shocking leaper detect movement even better than its eyes, and also give depth, being the main sense this leaper use to throw his tongue-stomach, wich now has little glands of electroreception. The electrobuds in his stomach-tongue make this leaper lick the water around it to extend its electric senses.
>>4193499Not quite as deep down as their cousins, in far more mild temperatures just a few miles underground, Rock Drills have dug out a huge tunnel network in a manganese rich part of the continent, and as a result saw their bodies turn a deep purple.Though otherwise stable, these tunnels are often hit by earthquakes from volcanic hotspots further down, resulting too in a spectacular collapse of these tunnels into one, singular super-cave whose only connection to the surface are a few narrow passageways through other caves further up.Down here, a few small rivers of ground-water exist as a result of rogue tunnels, where Drills have fallen to their death.
>>4186064The cloud samurai lurr is a creature endemic of the Black Leaf Estuary, the biggest in the estuary of the planet. Its the crossing between river, ocean, desert and grassland; and one of the hottest points in the world too. To combat this scorching sun, this samurai developed a silk veil around its shell-hat, this shadow when resting is extremely valuable and also serves to be left alone when burrowing in the sand to rest and keep cold during the hottest hours. This lurr feeds on the leafy globetrops of the south, and comes to breed in the shorelines of the river, where the males fertilize eggs and then weave a silk "bag" they carry until the offspring is mature enough to develop their own shell and sting. They also develop a mild venom that is irritating, and potentially blinding if the stinger hits the eye, but hardly lethal. they also hunt the occasional river vortchovie.
>>4192630The sunsilk weed is the new adaptation of this plant to the Black Leaf Stuary. Here, the plant has a higher colour and the silk is designed to preserve humidity instead of heat. Nevertheless the worms of this plants are more active and venture outside of the hive in their younger stages. This leads us to the main evolution of this creature: its pollen filaments. This not only radiates heat from the plant, it is charged with its genetic information, and needs to be put from the outside to its reproductive organs inside by a worm. This opens the possibility of worms of different hives and plants to mix between themselves and also gives the plants the way to mix between themselves. Genetic diversity in this species is high and that makes them specially resilient against sickness and parasites.
>>4191987Growing a more streamlined body, the Joustler is able to reach horselike speeds. It prefers running in wide open fields, and is even able to quickly slash prey bigger than itself.
>>4193977Some Ursa have developed jointed fingers, allowing them to make a very blunt fist with their claws. Additionally, their tails have started to dull out from a lack of use.
>>4187154The satan heart, like his other cousins, takes into a parasitic life, but in a river creature, the helix drill, wich has two stomacs full of minerals to feed nutrietns to this plant. The poor drill is almost constantly in a psychotic-zombie state, the few realeases it gets, its when the sun hits Satan's Heart, so the host has a positive feedback to let the plant do the photosynthesis.
>>4194177hey man I don't mean to be rude butthose things are subterranean, how would the plants get their sunlight?
>>4191461By the rivers of the Savannas, some grainy plants by the name of Gray-Hay grow big, delicious leaves in hopes of some hungry herbivore leaving them a nice pile of fertilizer.
>>4194140The Ursa has redeveloped its plate armor to better defend itself from predators. It has also learned that throwing rocks is a pretty good way too ward off predators, since it has massive fucking pitching arms.
discord is completly failing to work sooo im sort of here still phone only though hopefully internet back tommorow along with ya know electricity
>>4188577Fly-Drakes have achieved full flight. They chose to fly up high to the top of Globelithes where they spray holes just tiny enough so that no Antisocial Crawlers can get in. They then proceed to burrow from that hole down to make their colonies.
>>4194294In addition to growing longer necks, Ursas have become much more social and now tend to stick with their mates and their young.
>>4193998The Shockrus is what happens when a shocking leaper all but foresakes the land to delve ever deeper into large bodies of fresh water, and finds the hidden catacombs of the brown lurs. Swimming through water and tunneling through mud, it uses powerful electrosenses to root out its prey; combining this ability with the metal it incorporates from its favoured prey, it can create bursts of electromagnetism to stun and/or attract prey. Taking them into its gullet, it cooks them alive in a powerful electro-chemical oven in its bowels.Its eyes are all but useless for sight, but it hardly needs them any longer with its ever-more-powerful electrosensitivity. Instead, it repurposes them as signaling organs to startle and attract rivals and mates, and to signal its young.
>>4183189Frog shrubs, being a rare glob suited to a largely non-photosynthetic existence, are perfect to inhabit the depths of deep and murky lakes, and eventually some even find their way down into the deep lur-caverns. They do this thanks to their motile seedlings, who follow a strange migratory pattern: the rise up from their birthing place, absorb sunlight to stimulate growth, and then plummet back down to anchor themselves in rich earth or dead animals, and then to grow into...The Frog's Pearl Glob, a sticky, soft plant vaguely resembling ancient pearl globs aesthetically, but with sickly greyish leaves and an oilier sheen. This plant is relatively short-lived, being mostly a birthing place for a new wave of its tadpole-like seedlings.
>>4194546If their eyes barely work how do they see those signals?
>>4194517Killer Fly-Drakes are a predatory offshoot specializing in the use of their ancestral venom to slay wall frogs.
>>4194583They're electromagnetic signals.
>>4194517Pixie Fly-Drakes take to a more migratory lifestyle, finding themselves feasting on gumdrop trees' fruit. Over time, the peach gumdrop trees' more mobile fruits and seedlings give them cause to become still more agile and mobile.
>>4183189A less radical, but no less striking, permutation of the frog shrub occurs contemporaneously with Frog's Pearl Glob: the Lite-Brite Shrub. These subaquatic shrubs grow in lakebeds, where only their pearl-like cousins compete with them for real estate. They remain photosynthetic, using huge, long fronds to accumulate energy from the sun, but at night they glow brightly and put out an electromagentic current to attract vortchovies and leapers alike. Their seedlings are no longer motile, but still have small barbs that then stick to them, allowing these glob-shrubs young to travel with the creatures once they depart.
>>4194601The Twintail Pixies use their two stingers as claws, ripping apart defenseless >>4193033 Gumdrop Leapers.
>>4193033Harassed by more and more predators, some of those cute little gumdrop leapers abandon the trees to eat globetrops and stabgrasses in the open plains. They lap at the harder varieties with acidic saliva to soften them, and then chomp away with newly blocky teeth. Their colours become more cryptic, their hind legs adapt for rapid hopping and running, and their eyes shift sideways and adapt to specialize in detecting movement.Grassmunching Leapers have learned their lesson about taking it easy.
>>4193978Many Cobalt Rock Drills have taken to a more sedentary lifestyle around the lake and river in the Great Ocean Hollow. Adapting to, but still susceptible to the immense temperatures in the Hollow, climbing up to 150°C despite already massive insulation from the thick salt-crusts all around, the presence of ever new tunnels, putting holes into this insulation, keeps the temperature well-beyond scorching.Feeding almost exclusively off of the boiling salt-water, the Mustard Drills have lost their breathing holes and instead breathe the Oxygen produced in their stomachs, made by breaking down water. Sustaining themselves entirely off of the Sodium contained in ocean water. Leaving only the Chlorine and Hydrogen. Enzymes in their stomach turn a part of these waste products into hydrochloric acid, used to further digest tougher rocks like granite, chunks of which may accidentally find their way into the diet of the Mustard Drill.The remaining Hydrogen is excreted and is eventually bound into the salt walls, whereas the remaining Chlorine is bound to it's scales, creating a ticking time-bomb.When the temperature in the Hollow rises above a cozy 80°C, the Chlorine in the scales will begin to unbind itself from the scales and spread across the Hollow in it's pure gas form, greatly culling the numbers of everything that isn't a Mustard Drill.Their presence keeps the highly fragile climate of the Hollow in balance.
>>4191901The Fleeders now have lost a lot of grounds to these new generations: the sky is filled with dragons, the rollers rule the plains, not even their old trees and the caves are safe anymore. Left with nothing but themselves, the Fleeders change drastically: they develop an actual mouth, with teeth made to not let the prey go while the acid does its job. Being outclassed physically by numerous beings, they now start to rely more on numbers, with packs being made up of as many as 50 individuals. Their front paws change, developing a new type of finger/toe/claw, which is capable of grasping and letting go of objects. There have been sightings of Fleeders using these new hands to pick up rocks and using them to smash hard fruits they couldn’t dissolve with their acid, or, even more rarely, of group efforts to carry logs to make temporary bridges over dangerously strong rivers
>>4189538The silverthorn globoda is the adaptation to the silver grasslands of the arid plains of the Black Leaf Estuary. Its slowly loses his dark shell to a silver-like one, and the reflection attracts some of the bloodgrape vines into the "roofs" of the globoda. The fruits also changed, now growing where the luminescent patches were before. This fruits are also mixed with blood grapes, and biologicla baskets that hold them has some spines similar to the one in the vines. Animals try to get to their fruit trought the vines and thorns, sometimes falling to their deaths at the feet of the globoda. Sometimes they eat the fruit and spread the seed elsewere. With this the silverthorn globoda has improved his humidity loss, reproduction rate and defenses.
>>4189473In the areas too hot for any kind of globoda, some cotton candy trees adapted to the hot plains of the Black Leaf Estuary, and they have to compete with the silver globetrops. To do this, the roots are now thicker, closer to the ground, and the cotton, not only changing its colour, now when the bush fruits reach maturity, the cotton dries almost as it passes their water to the fruits and roots becoming highly flammable in arid seasons. When the fire starts, the modified fruit literally explote, losing some of its initial shell but spreading the wildfire to the globetroph grasses. The seeds are full of water and their shell is tough enough to survive, while many globetrophs become fertile ashes from where the firebush seed will grow when rains arrive. The firebush sometimes survives his inmolation thans to its thicker roots. Sometimes.
>>4194601Sun flydrakes are getting smaller and smaller, losing its legs and sting, as they adapt to a peaceful herbivore life, feeding on the silverflobetrophs, fallen and half rotten fruit (wich they like a lot) of globoda and bloodgrapes, and occasionally venture into the sunsilk weed bulbs to eat the pollen and flesh of the plant, at least until the worms appear to defend it. The worms sometimes become a part of the menu but the pixie-drake doesn't favour it. Their wingspan keeps its original size and in fact gets stronger, keeping the pixie-drake in the air as it rips the plant, and then lands to eat it (except with the rotten fruit, wich is already on the floor)
hmm my id keeps changing. probbably cause of the no wifi situation
>>4194904I feel ya there, bud.
>>4194838Some firebushes developed a tall twig that pokes out of their head in order to attract lightning strikes.
power is back sooo
>>4194652Roaming Leapers are brownish descendants of Grassmunching leapers who have adapted to varied climes with tougher, drier skin, hooded eyes, and a smaller size. They readily move into scrubland, estuaries, and even into the edges of deserts.
>>4191458Some Spiny Globetrops that grow on mountains develop a thick, soft fuzz to insulate heat. They are called Glob-Swabs.
