Ancestor:Descendants:

When the competition for food along the Somarinoa Coast became too difficult, the sledohness of the area no longer benefited from trying to defend their hunting grounds and started hunting on land instead. These sledohness evolved into the slonefaug. It hunted animals that were a lot smaller then itself, so therefore it shrank a bit in size since it didn't need to be so big anymore. The new mouth it has developed is especially good for catching the small and fast prey of Somarinoa Coast. This speed however is something the slonefaug cannot keep up with, but it has at least developed a few things to compensate this. First, the skin is sand colored, making the slonefaug at least a little bit harder to detect though it is not a sneaker. Second, the finlike legs have evolved huge muscles to let the slonefaug make big leaps, or run at a decent speed for a short time. In other cases the slonefaug isn't very fast since it has got quite short legs that still work as fins if needed. But hunting down prey isn't a very hard task since the slonefaug is more then 10 times bigger then most of its prey, so a short run is usually what is needed. The huge weight of the huge head is balanced out by the tail that fills this new function perfectly, and the fin-like extensions on the head and on the tail have now developed a thin membrane on top of the other skin membrane that can sense vibrations and in that way works as very primitive ears.
