The vamplumbia split from its ancestor. It has become a parasite of the Megascooter, feeding on its blood. It has camoflagued itself to help avoid detection: its body is brown like both the ground and the crestagreeus, and its back plate is yellow to mimic the twinkiroos. The megascooter isn't particularly bright, and sometimes will even gobble up a vamplumbia thinking its a tasty twinkiroo. The vamplumbia is now amphibious, being able to climb on the crestagreeus to better reach a host. They can also hold a store of water under their back plate to keep themselves from drying out.
Vamplumbias will live inside the throat sac of their host, drinking blood from the membranes; this can cause the megascooter noticable irritation, especially when a great host of vamplumbias are feeding off one individuals. Vamplumbias will also lay their sticky eggs on the breathing membranes when they can, ensuring a food source for their young.
