Ancestor:Descendants:

The purpplage worm has replaced its ancestor in Krakow Rocky. It has lost its ability to fly, since it never has anywhere to fly. It has grown much larger, and much better at walking. The most striking difference, however, is its camouflage. Its wings and last five pairs of legs have transformed into large leaf-like appendages that imitate purpplage. To allow it to see better, the two eyes closest to the end of the tail have turned up to face forward, and can look around if the tail turns. The other eyes, located along its back, have started to atrophy, since they are no longer used.
