A direct progression from the puff-tongued plenthog, the sticky-tongued plent emerged soon after stickyballs began their conquest of Sagan 4. The 'tongue' is now used to actively snare approaching worms... and more. The sticky-tongued plent has begun to favor a somewhat more substantial diet, choosing to feed on various flying plents, especially the stickyball licker, which is actually attracted to the stickyball-encrusted sticky-tongue. The sticky-tongue has excellent reflexes, and its eyes have moved to the top of its head to allow for an almost 360 degree view of the sky. The abundant, new food source and the threat of predators has caused the sticky-tongue to grow larger than its ancestor, but it is still small enough to take cover in high vegetation. The Sticky-Tongue exists in the savannas, plains, swamps, and forests of the western subcontinent (Glicker), having been able to traverse the sparsely populated rocky regions thanks to fortuitous gliding sagworm migrations providing unseasonal food.
