The shroomworm split from its ancestor the powder petitworm. It adapted to eating the spores from "shrooms". Its body has changed little, except for its change in color to blend in with the "shrooms". Like its ancestor it breathes through many holes in its head while its eyes go down its back. It also uses these breathing holes to smell and search out spores to each. Once found it uses its sticky tongue to lick them up. It is an important part of the ecosystem and keeps the "shrooms" in check from taking over the other kinds of flora. Also it ironically helps pollinate the "shooms" by vising each "shroom". It lays its sticky eggs under the cap the "shroom".
