The capylak split off from the azelak in search of a home that had much more food than the Glicker Alpine. During its evolution, their top eyes have moved to the top of their head so that they can see better, while they also developed buck teeth so that they can easily cut away violettail and eat it. Their feet became webbed and have lost most of their spikes so that they can swim better. The capylak's camouflage has reduced to a dark brown back with purple spots that can appear and disappear in different parts on its back and look like freshwater raftballs, though this type of camouflage makes it difficult for predators to spot it because when it's seen from above, the darker shade blends in with the marshy waters. The capylaks are often found in small groups of 4 to 7, which helps them keep a look out for predators like the sledodil. During mating season, the capylaks go into the water and do a little swimming dance to see who can swim the longest without getting tired. After the female finds a good mate, they mate in the water and go on to land to lay their eggs.
