Ancestor:Descendants:

The venomshell dirtfeeder has replaced the spikedshell bubblehorn in the BigL Beach area. It has formed a symbiotic relationship with morsus turpis, and as a result has a poisonous coating over its horns and shell. It's shell's spikes have combined to form three spiky ridges for more defense, and it's horns have grown longer and harder. Each horn now has a long spike coming out of it which it can use offensively, to ward off potential predators. Because of its newfound defense, the venomshell dirtfeeder can now feed on decaying flesh and plant matter as well as dung.
