This branch of ketter ventured out of the forests and began eating anything small enough to stick in its mouth due to its tougher digestive system. Its widened paws allow it to easily burrow small, shallow pits that it hides in to avoid predators such as the saucebacks. Since the saucebacks rely on echolocation they will usually miss a ketter within a hole since it will just "see" it as a hole in the ground. Other predators, such as azeraptors and bearhog plents, often do not see the holes until they are right above them since they are often dug in areas with tall violetgrass. Some violet ketter still dwell in the sparse trees of the savanna. Their new pigment is derived from their diet of violetgrass and stickyballs. The pigment is absorbed through digestion and aids in hiding the Violet Ketter. When hunting for flying worms or darts a Ketter will find an area with the creature's scent and then sit and wait with its tail and head sticking straight up, masked as a blades of grass. When one comes near or lands on the ketter it strikes with the now-shortened lance above its mouth. If a violet ketter cannot find adequate sustenance from its usual diet it may even feast on its distant relative the stickyball licker and extremely rarely, it's own kind.
