Volucris teproutine split from its ancestor. It evolved a chamber filled with nitrogen where the hard shell is, making it airborne. The four flagella have evolved feather like hairs on them to allow it to steer some in the atmosphere, although the wind takes it wherever it blows. Volucris teproutine hunts the nimbus, which has no way of defending itself from predators. To actually prey on the nimbus, Volucris teproutine is also slightly larger than its ancestor.

Living Relatives (click to show/hide)

These are randomly selected, and organized from lowest to highest shared taxon. (This may correspond to similarity more than actual relation)

None found. Note that this does not necessarily mean it has no living relatives at all, but that, assuming all taxonomy is filled in, its entire phylum is extinct; any relatives it does have likely do not resemble it.
