The system of chemical communication that started with its ancestors has again developed and become more complicated. A sticky-cube colony is capable of using specific chemicals to move in four directions when there is not enough sunlight, or there are too many herbivores or omnivores about. Moving to a new position is no longer as dangerous, as the production of sonosil is only moderately inhibited by the uprooting of the organism. The awful tasting chemical sonosil, which the sticky-cube produces, has become even stronger smelling, and the sticky-cube can even slowly pull itself up the sides of small trees or short cliffs when required. Though not as advanced as a common "animal" type organism, the sticky-cubes ability to move together as small colonies is quite advanced. However, the sticky-cube is not without its disadvantages, as the movements of the cube attract a lot of attention from omnivores and herbivores.
