The whiskered hoofbear has split from its ancestor the wetland hoofbear. It has specialized in eating swamp beans and swampmeans. It has special saliva that neutralizes the harmful glue-like protein that the swampmeans produce. It spends most of its day grazing in the water with its butt in the air. Its "butt-nostril" has gotten longer and is used like a snorkel so it can breathe while submerged. Its leaves have migrated more towards the back so it can have full sunlight outside the water. However it is still weak. Its waggles now work like whiskers to help it feel around for food in the mud.

Unlike its ancestor they live in herds of around 5 to 10. Each herd consists of females and their babies. The males however are still solitary. Males will fight over the right to mate with females in the early spring. Males fight by biting. They no longer have a knee spike since it got in the way for much of the time.
