The hoverswent replaced its ancestor and now spend almost all its life airborne. The hoverswents wings are huge and with the light bodyweight of the hoverswent they can spend hours airborne without tiring. To help the hoverswent with this they consume microorganisms for additional energy although the hoverswents' main diet is photosynthesis. Due to their great numbers they have spread to new biomes. They can reach incredible altitudes and to cope with the climate they have evolved a heating/cooling system. They can send blood from their wings to their body when they need to get warm or cool down, allowing them to survive where they usually wouldn't. They use the large sail on their back for this purpose but also to steer.
