The kite-tongued plent is a direct progression from the net-tongued plent. It is just the same as its ancestor, except that its tongue has grown A LOT longer! It now can be used like a kite. They will run backwards slowly, letting more of their tongue out has it sails higher and higher into the air. Once fully in the air, sticky webbing will fall down so it can collect flying sagworms as well as flying plents. Once enough get caught in this sticky webbing, it will retract its tongue into its huge mouth pouch and consume the trapped prey. They live mainly on the savannas and plains of Glicker, but have been known to live on the rocky cliffs where the wind is strong and will sail up their kite tongue without them having to run at all.
