Ancestor:Descendants:

Due to the spreading of the orangepede, the poison urchips started to evolve plates instead of spikes. Now the shelled urchip is protected by big plates and orangepedes can't attack them anymore. Against parrotworms, they still have three poisonous spikes at the top. Their tentacles became shorter, so that they can move them under the shell if an orangepede attacks. Therefore, they are slower than their ancestor.
