When its ancestor came close to shallows, this creature had to develop its posterior members to allow its movement in muddy waters with a lot sediment, transforming the old appendages into two fine legs. Now its tentacles also are used to walk and its paddle is used for giving balance to it. This creature acquired amphibious habits, starting to live in shallows and on the land. On land, the terricola is very fast, and its way to walk resembles that of a spider. Parasitism, a characteristic that was abandoned by all the descendants of the Protomancerxia Thermaparasitica, returns in this creature. When it perceives the approach of a target, it starts to run and jumps on the victim, where it arrests it with its long stings and legs and starts to suck it. In case the victim reacts and tries to kill it, the terricola quickly gets loose and runs away so that it cannot be reached.
