This is an amphibious offshoot from the plandaphant called the plapir. It adapted to living in the Ovi Lake. The legs are bent due to modified plant fibers that literally form "wooden bones". This helps the plapir's swimming. The tail grows longer so the posterior breathing hole can reach the air and breathe. The two trunks develop "thumbs" to improve grasping. Their mouths have a battery of wooden teeth that grind up plants. Plapirs favor lillypalms, the leaves of floating roots, and pampyruses.
Male Palpirs have long colorful sails, while females have short, dully colored ones.
