The bearhog plentdog split off from the sailbacked bearhog plent. Its many adaptations include bigger ears that can hear even better than its ancestor's, a longer snout and muzzle that helps it grab hold onto its prey when it bites into its prey's body. They are also much more social than their ancestor. However, one of the most significant changes include a stumpy tail that is used to express their feelings.
For example, when the tail is sticking back, it is angry, and if the tail is wagging, it is scared. Another adaptation is that its tongue can pick up scent particles in the air. Then it rubs its tongue onto a pair of tiny bumps on the roof of its mouth, thus it rubs off scents it has collected. Then the bumps checks out the collected scents and sends a message through its "brain", which helps it find more food, mates and enemies than its ancestor. This adaptation is much like how a snake smells.
