The stickyball-crown shrub has changed yet again, this time moving out of the desert completely for the more hospitable lands of the Huggs-Yokto Savanna. While the only real change that we can see from the outside is a small change in the patches shape, many internal changes have come to pass. The rudimentary chemical communication that developed with the savanna sticky-rods ancestors has grown more complex and less reactionary. Four chemicals that mean "release sonosil" , "secrete sticky sap", "stop releasing sonosil" and "stop releasing sticky sap" can be released by each sticky-rod. Sonosil is the name that has been given to the chemical that, when released, makes the sticky-rod smell and taste quite awful to any organism that tries to eat it. By stopping the production of sticky sap, the sticky-rod can conserve energy in an emergency and eventually be moved to a new location by the weather. This is dangerous however, as drifting sticky-rods are easy pickings for herbivores and omnivores alike, and almost 60% of sticky-rod colonies die out this way. Despite these challenges, the rudimentary system of communication has made the sticky-rod quite successful.
