Ancestor:Descendants:

Stickyballs are one of the most annoying flora on Sagan 4. Stickyballs have evolved from beach puffs, but have thrived with their quick asexual reproduction rate. As their name suggests, they are tiny balls that stick to everything! Stickyballs not only stick to other plants and tree-like plents, but stick to animals as well. The only real place that has been saved from the stickyball plague is the dry desert, where there is just not enough moisture for them to stick. Many plants are dying because they stick onto their leaves, and plents have gotten weaker due to the stickyballs that stick to their leaf-sails. The reason they have spread so much is their annoying nature. They get stuck on you, and then you scrape it off onto something else. It doesn't matter if its a living thing or just a rock; they stick everywhere.
