The grasssnapper split from the sandsnapper. They eat eggs, just like their ancestor. They are now better adapted to the tall grasses of the savanna. Their legs have grown taller, as well as their neck and eye-stalks, to see over the grass since they cannot hear. Also, since the neck is longer, the 3rd pair of eyes has stayed behind on the shoulders so that it can see behind it and on both sides. Their sense of smell has improved, and it can sniff out eggs from miles away. The back sail and tail have developed sharp spines to fend off predators. They can run very fast as well to escape predators, and their snout has become more compact, so it is less front heavy. It still depends upon water to lay its eggs, so once a year all of them migrate to the river to mate and lay their frog-like eggs. Their scales can still change color and are used both for mating as well as hiding in the long grass.
