The ferret ketter has split from the violet ketter to live in the Yokto temperate forest. With its new environment, the ferret ketter has changed in two key ways. First of all, it has begun to abandon photosynthesis, in favor of a plant and animal matter diet. The ketter has grown to be longer, and thinner, as well. This helps it to outrun its newest predator in the region, the azelak scavenger. This new shape has also allowed it to catch flying darts without too many injuries (it could catch them anyways, but a flying dart can injure a ketter quite easily).
