The schutzhund scylarian has split from its ancestor and has "regained" the symbiotic relationship its distant ancestor, the speckled snark, had with pyamus'. Living on the sandy seafloor, the schutzhund scylarian can typically be found camouflaged in the sand within a short distance of either a segmented pyamus or more commonly a contracting pyamus. They guard it from its predators such as red echofins, as well as feed on the species that commonly swim by them. Their pale coloration hides them in the dark waters near the bottom of LadyM Polar Sea.
The young, who are typically born in groups of 3-4, will leave their parents soon after being born in order to find a new pyamus to live with. Males will guard their pyamus from all intruders, save for a single female with which it will mate for life with. They then both stay with the pyamus and reproduce every other year. The young will stay with the adults for about a week before setting off into the world.
From this symbiotic relationship, the pyamus can grow faster due to lack of predators while at the same time feed on the scraps left by the schutzhund scylarians. The scylarians, in term, have a safe place to raise their young as well as a steady food source from the numerous echofins that attempt to feed on the pyamus.
