The koral turtsnapper split off from its ancestor the turtsnapper. It is now a full herbivore and eat the hard ora koral crystal. It uses its strong beak and teeth to bite off the red crystals. It is a horrible swimmer and must wait to eat until low tide. Its spines are now red in color to mimic the ora koral crystals and its belly is light colored to blend in with the foamy surf of the shore.
During high tide they will sit i the sun and digest their meal. There are normally not many predators on the beach however sometimes predators from neighboring biomes pass through. When this happens they freeze and try to pretend they are an ora koral crystal. They must also be careful from any sea predator who will come to shore and snatch them up.
During mating season the females will lay their frog-like eggs directly in the water. This can be dangerous so they all do it at the same time in case they or their egg get eaten. The koral turtsnapper can also hibernate, which allows them to survive during times of famine. Typically only the koral turtsnappers on temperate beaches will hibernate during their winters while the ones on tropical beaches stay active all year round. Their strong claws are great for digging hibernation burrows in the sand.
