The longtonguer split from its ancestor, the whipskipper, and moved to Darwin Tropical Woodland. This wet and lush environment allowed the longtonguer to retain its moisture outside the wetlands of Ichthy Swamp. Its tongue grew longer, and it now uses this appendage to taste the ground around it for its favorite food, the vitesenza. To avoid predators, the longtonguer's colors resemble the broadleaf hugograss' colors.
For movement, the longtonguer uses its now strong and flexible tentacles, which were once its whiskers, and its back fins. this is an awkward movement for a former water bound organism, but it is enough for it to be able to capture its main food source, and avoid predators among the broadleaf hugograss leafs.
