Ancestor:Descendants:

The globecrab has replaced its ancestor on Flisch beach. The globecrabs' body has adapted to look like a globerope; when they sense danger, they will dig in their legs so they will look like a normal Globerope and will be harder to find for predators. They no longer use their pincers to crush prey as they only eat globerope, but they still use them to dig in the sand. The shell has gotten harder so stumpworm suckers can't pierce it and the tail globes are hollow so it doesn't get too heavy to carry around.
