The egg krugg split from their ancestor. They have specialized their diet in eating the eggs of native species. They now live a dangerous life, eating the eggs of skysnappers and ukfauna. To defend themselves they are covered in thin constantly growing spines that break off inside the mouths of potential predators. They have also grown a chitin horn and longer front claws that they use to dig for eggs. Like their ancestors they breathe through primitive book lungs located between the segments of their leather-like chitin exoskeleton and lay their snail-like eggs under the soil so predators cannot find them. The eggs can stay dormant for months until warmer weather comes.
