Ancestor:Descendants:

The burrowing purple bubblehorn has replaced the spikedshell bubblehorn in the Nuke Beach area. Its legs have become wider and more flat, to better burrow through the sand. The last pair of legs have developed a shovel-like shape, which helps the bubblehorn burrow backwards. Spending this much time in the sand has given the bubblehorn a symbiotic relationship with testudohexapodia acta, which tinges the bubblehorn purple and gives it camouflage. Also, it's sensitive horns have grown shorter and sturdier to insure that they do not get damaged by falling sand.
