Ancestor:Descendants:

The Red Spiralip has split from the Spiral Urchip. Instead of feeding on shrubites, it now consumes an entirely new food source; Ironweed. They suck in the Ironweed with their hollow proboscis. Over many generations, they have shortened to become only twice the size of their food, and have undergone a change in color as well to blend in with the red sand. Spiralips have even spread to Clayren Coast because of their new food source.
