The alpine carnofern split from its ancestor the carnofern. Like its ancestor its has a digestive system on the underside of its leaves. Tiny sticky fibers digest down the stickyballs and it is absorbed into the plant. Sometimes other small creatures get stuck to it an will be absorbed too but it is very rare due to the plants small size. It also has a single flower on the top with will release airborne pollen and then, once mature, will grow a cluster of seed-filled berries which are eaten and spread by the local wildlife. It also has developed a thick trunk in which it can stay dormant in during the cold winters. In the alpine areas where its too cold for stickyballs to live it survives only on photosynthesis. Its main difference between its ancestor and it, is that it has grown a bit taller and can survive in very cold and high altitudes.
