Ancestor:Descendants:

The skysnapper split from the gliding plentsnapper. It has finally developed true flight. It will soar around Huggs waterways and look below with its improved eyes. Two pair now face backwards while the main two face frontwards and the last 2 look straight down looking for prey. Its bones have gotten lighter so it weight much less even though it has grown larger in size. Its skin can still change colors but its stay normally the color of the sky in order to blend in with it and then swoop down. The only thing that gives it way is its shadow bocking out the sun. It no longer hunts wingworms but now prefers finworms and other smaller aquatic species. It lays its eggs up in the river or sea water plants.
