The pygmypodia split from its ancestor and shrank in size. It lives in groups of eight to twelve individuals who work together as a team and at the same time would fight to the death to defend their fellow group members. Smaller, more flexible and agile, and possessing a slightly more advanced brain, these peaceful creatures to live in more "wooded" areas than their ancestors, though they can live just about anywhere in Drake.

Evolution has granted these creatures longer, stronger arms and more dexterous hands. They also possess sturdier legs with which to run with. Their eyestalk is longer and thicker as well for protection. Their third arm is useful in picking the fruit of tall flora as well as reaching into burrows and grabbing one of its inhabitants.

A matriarch, the oldest female, dominates each group. She, along with the other females, pass on their knowledge to their offspring such as how to hunt or what plants are good to eat, as well as what creatures they should avoid. Males play a role in this as well, though to a far lesser extent. They instead prefer to show off their dominance and fight off rival males attempting to win over the females.

They still use tools just like their ancestors, but have know become smart enough to realize they can sharpen their rocks and such in order to make more effective tools. Should a group be threatened by another one or a predator, they will bash things together in order to make as much noise as possible in order to scare them off.

Besides these changes, overall they are similar to their ancestors.
