Those azelaks residing in the alpine habitat grew greatly in number, due to a lack of predators. This led some to live further away from the central alpine region and into the western desert. They began to eat the bubbles off of the bubble cactus but, that being the main source of food for other creatures such as the nobomaton, it lowered the abundance of the cactus. So the azelak began to feed on some of the plant-like plents. This allowed for the regrowth of lost bubble cactus organisms.
They became the azelak sprinter, a slightly larger, leaner azelak that runs faster than almost all other creatures in the desert region. Its strong tail has grown larger and, when hunting prey, will give the azelak an extra powerful boost, propelling it forward faster and onto its prey. Though now partially carnivorous, the azelak sprinter still eats plants such as the bubble cactus. Its "teeth" are actually a curved and serrated row of bone-like material on the top and bottom of its mouth. These serrated rows have few pain-receptive nerves in them and can heal themselves in case they are broken. Its coloring has become more of a sandy color, but it still holds some of its old fur coloring. The fur helps keep the azelak cool in the desert, like Earth's camel. The azelak sprinter is about the size of a small deer.
