Ancestor:Descendants:

The leaftongue has replaced the saggulper in Krakow Rocky. It has evolved superb camouflage to help it ambush its prey, purpplage worms, even better. It will spend most of its day lying flat down on its stomach with its tongue poised like a purpplage leaf. When its prey come near its tongue, it grabs it with its strong tongue and stronger mouth appendages. It will then put the entire thing in its large mouth at once. Its eyes have atrophied to a minuscule size and no longer function very well, or not at all. Its ears have grown larger and more sensitive, as well as its sense of touch. It generally doesn't move unless it finds prey, is seeking a mate, or a larger organism comes too close and it has to move to avoid being stepped on. Its tail has grown larger to store fat in case it can't find food for a while. Also, its forearms and wings have both disappeared, since they were no longer used.
