The jaydoh waxface has split from its ancestor the woolly waxface and has adpated to life in the Jaydoh Desert. Due to the arid environment it has lost much of its woolly feathers and haves developed large ears to dissipate heat. They are nocturnal and hunt mainly the quilltail. Like its ancestor they are blind and use their acute smelling and hearing to locate prey. This comes in handy under the cover of darkness.
The breathing holes on its back have become larger to help it breathe in and out when running. It has strong leathery skinned legs which help it out run its prey. Once it bites its prey with its sharp fangs (which have since un-fused) it will suffocate them until they stop moving. Once dead they can swallow the prey whole. They are not above scavenging for food either and their acute sense of smell comes in handy when locating carrion. Due to the lack of harmful chitinase producing flora it produces next to no wax anymore. The only wax it produces to keep its skin from loosing precious water.
They still live in tight packs consisting of four or five individuals. Due to lack of water females release their young into the feathers on their tail, the snorkels that the larvae grow are now mainly used to interlace with their mothers feathers. The mother produce "crop milk" from their crop. This "milk" is chunky and easily digestible by the offspring until they can digest meat. Once on a meat diet the parents will give them the riches parts such as the fat so they can grow up as fast as possible.
When they start to develop limbs and their snorkels start to disappear they will often venture away from the safety of their mothers tail and hunt small or baby fauna, although they often return to their childhood home if they get too scared or hungry, the mother may even force them back on if she feels it necessary.
