Ancestor:Descendants:

The spraying silverling split from the archer silverling. The spraying silverlings beak has changed so that the silverlings body can stay horizontal. The spraying silverling has developed a poison gland inside it's beak which is deadly enough to kill a twelve-winged worm. Every twelve-winged worm that gets hit by this poison will eventually die. Because of this, the spraying silverling is now able to spray water (mixed with its poison) into the air to hit multiple targets instead of just one. All of its targets will die after a short period of time, so the spraying silverling simply has to find the dead bodies lying in the water. In this way, the spraying silverling saves much more energy than when it has to aim at each single twelve-winged worm.
