Ancestor:Descendants:

The sauceback hunter split from its ancestors in the Ittiz-Ovi Desert to hunt along the Clayren Beach region. It gets its name from its primary source of nourishment; the rusted sauceback. The lack of very large prey (outside of digging capoos) has brought about a shorter, more compact shape to the sauceback. As well, its skin pigment has changed from its ancestor's coloring, which helps it sneak up on capoo prey. However, coloration is useless on its other prey; the rusted sauceback, which has very similar senses. In order to get an advantage on its prey, it has begun to develop a very basic heat sensing organ on its forehead. Currently this organ is completely useless unless it's close to its prey, but that's enough for the organism to keep the enhancement and pass it on to further generations.
