High Grassland Ukback
The high grassland ukback has split from its ancestor the ukback. In search of prey they have spread to the Darwin High Grassland. They have become completely purple to blend in with all the purple flora, they have grown longer claws to more easily catch prey, and they have become ¾ of their size to cope with their new diet.
The high grassland Ukback constantly roams the grassland for prey and carcasses for an easy meal. They prey upon familiar prey like the woolly xenobee, but they have also become accustomed to new prey like the yellowdundi. They have a usual habit of climbing up arid ferines and hide in the leaves until prey comes along. They even have evolved a bright pink tail to lure prey closer to them. Sometimes when they spot woolly xenobee’s, or yellowdundi’s that haven’t spotted them, They will follow the prey back to their hive or colony. They will visit there constantly and wait for prey to come out or they will just try to dig them out.
The high grassland ukback is a solitary creature and only comes together to mate in the spring. They will begin the search for a mate and males will fight over females. Then the female will lay their eggs directly into any body of water. The parents will not care for the offspring. The offspring hatch as a larva phase which resembles a uksip terricola. The larva mostly scavenge for food until they are large enough to hunt themselves.
