Ancestor:Descendants:


The serpenspine has split from its ancestor and taken fully to life out at sea, a short leap from their ancestors already nearly fully aquatic life. A peaceful herbivore, it has developed a longer, more serpentine shape in order to move quicker through the water, and the crest on its head is used by the males to attract females. Its toes have fused together into a single nail, and are used to dig up flora on the ocean floor. The small bony spikes on its tail now serve as support structures for membranes extended between them, forming a "duel tail fin".

Serpenspines form family groups with strong bonds between members, especially between mother and child. They reproduce every other year and tend to have 1-2 young at a time. They are cared for and then live with the group for nearly 5 years before heading off and starting families of their own, all awhile taking care of their younger siblings.

A large breeding ground exists in the Blitz Polar Coast that, while not used by all serpenspine, serves as a good place for young to be born and raised during their first few months of life due to the overabundance of food and lack of predators.
