Ancestor:Descendants:

The flurgon replaced its ancestor, the muddy longbeak. It walks with is head hanging down with its butt-nostril in the air. This is so it can breathe while wading in the river. Its head almost never comes up anymore. It will stand still in the water waiting for a filter uksip to come by and then it will strike with its powerful beak. It will use its clawed feet to break open filter uksip burrows to get to them. On their heads they have grown 4 feelers which are sensitive to feel movement in the water

They are solitary hunters and only meet during mating season. In mating season the males will usually fight each other using their beaks, sometimes even critically wounding each other. Their pregnancy is about 5 months long and 6-12 small young are born. These are rather small as their beak from which they give birth is very narrow. The mother takes care of the young for 2 months and then leaves them alone as they get large enough to catch their own prey, young filter filter uksips. They live for an average of 10 years.
