Ancestor:Descendants:

The island skysnapper split from its ancestor, the cloud skysnapper. It has migrated from the South Polar Coast to Ovi Coast and Ovi Island. They lay their eggs on the island on the ground since there are no predators to eat them. It lays its hard shelled eggs in the warm summers. They only have 1 to 2 eggs and will raise them until they are young-adults. They pair for life and take turns taking care of the egg.

They have grown smaller to feed on the coastal waters. Like its ancestor it has downy feathers covering its body and is warm-blooded. The feathers are now purple to blend in with the local flora. Its feet have gotten larger and legs stronger so it can walk around more. While on the island they walk most of the time but when over the coast they will fly or even sit on top of the water and paddle with their webbed feet and steer with their tail fin. Since they are deaf they communicate through gestures with their wings and tails.
