Ancestor:Descendants:

The long-beaked phlyer split off from its ancestor, the phlyer. It has specialized in eating the fraboohorn and frabooball, as its long beak can get inside the shell and kill them. They have also grown a bit larger so it can pick up its prey in its beak. Long-beaked phlyers will often drop them from trees in order to break the shells open and get to the soft meat inside.


They will stay in flocks and sleep and raise young in the trees. They gather up floral fibers to make the round nests. They give birth to 2 to 3 babies and their parents will take turns bringing them food until they can fly on their own. Usually, this species mates for life and males will do elaborate courting displays in the air, showing off their bright colors. Another adaptation is their ability to "toot" to each other using their butt-nostrils.
