Ancestor:Descendants:

The phalanx lizardworm split off from its ancestor the fuzzy lizardworm. It now lives in the rainforest. It has grown to twice its ancestors size and mainly eats the huge neckeyes. It will hunt in small packs of 2 to 4 and ambush young or weak members of the herd.

Their coloring has changed to purple with spots to blend in with the local flora. They have evolved blades on their head and chin. These blades are used to slice the soft bellies of the neckeye as they leap upwards under them.

They still have proto-fur which helps keep them dry in the rainforest. They are also "lukewarm-blooded" which helps boost their activity during dusk. The emulsifly no longer travels with them because there are no superstickyballs in the rainforest.

It will use the dens at night as well. Its strong claws are great for digging. They lays broods of around 50 eggs of which around 5 will usually reach maturation. These eggs are fuzzy and are easier to keep it dry in the wet rainforest. They lay them in their burrows. Different packs will meet during the dry season to mate. During this time they will battle for mates with their blades. After the broad grows up they will start their own pack.
