Ancestor:Descendants:

The clumsy uktank has evolved from its marine ancestor to become amphibious spending most of its time in the water and the critical few hours of the day walking on the Ovi Island's shores. It has evolved many adaptations in order to be able to get out of the water. First in its massive hollow shell it has a huge tank filled with compressed oxygen floating in water it gathers most of the day while in the water. It also have many breathing holes in its shell in order to fill it with oxygen, which are closed with membranes during its time outside the water. It still reproduces in the water and lays eggs in the water. They flock in masses once every full moon near the beach at shallow waters in Ovi Coast for a mass reproduction ritual.

Most of their time on land is spent on feeding. They use their hooked shells to scratch stickyballs off the flora of the island and feed on them as they fall to the ground. Their urchip-sucking tooth has evolved into a boney ring mouth better used to feed on the stickyballs. It has gained its name because it walks slowly with very little balance due to its huge shelled tank.
