The net-tongued plent is a direct progression from the sticky-tongued plent. It has improved with tall eyes stalks, long front legs for better balance while its head is upright, and even a large size. The main adaption is its net-like tongue. It can snatch many more swarms of gliding sagworms as well as capturing a flying plent with ease. They cannot hide as well as before, so they tend to stick near rocks, boulders, bushes, and shrubs. Since it has no natural defense against predators and its a rather slow runner, even though it has quick reflexes, it can spit partially digested food at its attacker. This projectile vomit smells extremely bad and tends to stick when it hits, due to the stickyballs in its diet. It lives in the savannas, plains, swamps, and forests of the the Glicker continent, having been able to traverse the sparsely-populated rocky regions thanks to fortuitous sagworm migrations, providing unseasonal food.
