When the Krakow Swamp disappeared, the stalking murkworm had to quickly move on or die. Luckily for the stalking murkworm, some of its descendants were able to drag themselves along the rivers to their new homes, the Irinya Swamp and the Huggs Marsh. The microlungs right behind the first section of armor have split, and the spikes that protect them has split as well. The stilts have become sharper, almost blade-like, and are used to dig into the deeper sections of the mud, where more elusive organic material can be found for the bladed murkworm to feed on. The other sections of armor have grown small blades of their own, which help to protect the murkworm from predators like the sledodil and bearhog plent.
