The sticky cube-dragger split from its ancestor and moved into the regions of Krakow. Again, as is the pattern with sticky cube evolution, the individuals themselves do not change, but their organization has. One of the four "jaws" of the trap has changed, into a spatula-shaped arm that is used to drag itself along at slow speeds. Though it isn't a fast predator, the sticky cube-dragger can get prey in a way that doesn't require using its trap abilities. The dragging arm is folded against the cube when not in use, and can be thrust at prey. The prey becomes stuck to the green liquid (which the dragging arm rubs itself on to gather it for this purpose).
