Ancestor:Descendants:


The stankyballs split from the stickyballs in Hydro Savanna and moved into Ovi-Hydro-Nuke Rainforest where the humidity greatly encourages their growth. Unlike their ancestor, stankyballs cluster together instead of spreading all over the place. This results in clumps of stankyballs. The stankyballs which are trapped in the center of these clumps decompose into a noxious orange mush which seeps out between the cracks of the clump. This is due to a change in the sticky chemical that stankyballs produce. The new chemical also condenses into green globules which produce their own unique stench. The two terrible smells combine into an unbearable stench which even drives away creatures with no olfactory organs as they can taste it. Fortunately, stankyballs do not spread as fast as their ancestor and the chemicals of the stickytower will kill stankyballs.
