The tealspot cryoutine split from both its ancestors and is in fact a symbiotic creature. Some cryosagania from the mountains met the saproutine of the colder biomes in northern Glicker and formed a new symbiotic relationship that in time evolved into a whole new creature. The saproutine descendant forms the ground and base for the colony by growing on living hosts or on stones. The cryosagania descendant photosynthesizes and supports this organism with its needed energy. The saproutine descendant can still drain sap from its hosts but this is hardly necessary for the organism and only boosts up its growth. Because it lives in the cold biomes in the winter it will become dormant. Each cryosagania descendant is connected with its own saproutine descendants, one for each cell in its body.
