Ancestor:Descendants:

The leafback pakahe replaced its ancestor, the giant pakahe. It has grown even larger and grazes on the vast fields of sailyp and other grass-like flora. It it is so huge no predators can harm them. Only juveniles are vulnerable. However the herd will protect them with their clubbed tails. Each tail has a hard wood ball at the end. The "butt-nostril as moves to slightly behind it so it can breathe.

Other than the large size the other dramatic change is the abundance of many photosythetic leaves on its back. These run along the entire back and absorb sunlight to help give them a boost of energy. Which such a large body they constantly need to eat and absorb sunlight. They have poor vision and will charge at anything that threatens it. Males will compete for females by hitting each other in the side with their tail clubs.
