Ancestor:Descendants:

The leapdweller has split from its ancestor leaping tree dweller, and now they live within the Flisch-Krakow Rainforest. They have evolved a longer spade-toe which works much like its front limb's spade. This helps it hold onto branches when leaping through the trees. It also has evolved a pronged spike on its tail which can fit in the nooks of branches to keep it secure like a climber's hook.


The sharp spades and pronged tail pierce the bark, allowing it to stay firmly on the side of the tree. This makes bleeding sappy holes in which the skimming sapsuckers love to feed. They are quite strong and their tail alone can hold its entire body weight if needed. They live their lives even higher up in the trees than their ancestor. They also can catch themselves much better when falling from trees.


Since their spades are so long they rarely come down to the ground and now lay their eggs up in nets in the tree. Their nests are made up of the leaves they eat, and they will lay 2 to 3 eggs with females sitting upon them while the male collects leaves for its family. Each mated pair belong to an extended family of about 10 to 12; this group will travel together from grove to grove, feeding.


Their color-changing ability is very limited, with only the head changing color, and even then only for interspecies communication. Normally it stays green to blend in with the leaves they eat but will appear as a bright red if there is trouble.
