The wingworm catcher replaced the sagworm catcher in the Bone Swamp region. It has evolved to eat the wingworm line, since the gliding sagworm have since become extinct. They hunt much like their ancestors, but have picked up a unique style of resting. They hang upside down like a bat with hook-like feet. They can still walk around on the front pair of legs, but prefer to hang around upside down from darkpalm plants, then swoop down to grab a wingworm or two.
