The poop-scooping scuttlecrab evolved from the mud-scooping scuttlecrab. It has developed a life on the Ovi-Hydro Savanna rolling up dung from the many herbivores and forming them into big mounds. Since soft soil is generally hard to find, they use the dung for their burrows. They each work independently, but collectively build larger and larger mounds that eventually merge into each other. Since most of the herbivore dung has a lot of plant matter in it, their large mounds tend to be a brownish-purple. Surprisingly, stickyballs cannot grow well on it, because dirt is always tossed on top, continually covering them.
