The neaver split from the notooth. It has now taken up a more aquatic lifestyle. Even though it eats freshwater raftballs and bubble herus, it will chew shallowpalms and use the logs from it for its home. Like earth's beavers it will make dams and lodges. They use their back leaves to pack down the mud. Their butt-nostrils have evolved into snorkels, while their two-hoofed toes now have webbing and more closely resemble claws for digging at the mud. Also, its upper pair of eyes and ears have moved up to the top of the head so it can see out of the water while the rest of it is submerged. They must avoid many predators and are surprisingly good swimmers. Pleppos however will break down their dams so they must rebuild them constantly.
