The tusked sauceback split off from the leaping sauceback. It has reverted to the one foot at a time approach to moving around, which helps it move more quietly through the forest in which it lives. It has grown to a much larger size, about 1.5 meters to the top of the shell. However, it is much thinner than its ancestor, another trait adapted to the forest. It has developed large tusks, which are teeth that have separated from the rest of the oral ring, and can now move independently. These large tusks are used to puncture, tear, and/or grab their prey, which is much more efficient than using its circular jaw. Their ears have developed further and are now able to be directed towards the direction of sounds. They live in social packs, with as much as a dozen members. When hunting, they will quietly stalk the forest, using their sense of smell to track down prey. When they get near enough to hear it, they will start their attack, usually all coming in from different angles. Because they have no sight, their hearing is crucial when taking down their prey which includes: plandas, pink plandaphants, and browsing capoos.
