Another Sweep, we are almost at the next extinction!
This extinction will wipe out the grasslands of the valley, leaving the grassland plateaus of the Edgelands and Islands covered in forestry. Keep this in mind when making these last few creatures!
Ancestor: Kiwi Bird
Description: This species of Kiwi has adapted to use its strong claws and legs to grip the sides of the cliffs, walking sideways as it hunts for Cliffclimber Crabs and Grosgull nests. Their feathers are a dull, patchy grey, to blend in with the cliff face.
Ancestor: Crab-Eating Fox
Name: Sea Fox
Description: The sea fox has adapted specialized, streamlined fur and body shape, as well as strong swimming muscles and large lungs to allow itself to hunt in the shallows along the coast, eating crabs and fish alike. They range from grey to black to brown, with a few odd tans, whites, and even reds thrown in the mix on occasion. Their noses have specialized muscle to allow them to seal shut while diving, and they have developed longer whiskers and are able to see better underwater than their ancestors so that they can locate their prey.
Ancestor: Nursery Shark
Name: Chardybiss Shark
Description: This titanic species of shark spends most of items time lying on the seafloor, not expending much energy. Every once in a while, they will rapidly draw in a large amount of water, expelling it through their hills and creating a whirlpool to suck prey into their mouths. Occasionally, when larger prey swims by such as Zaratans, they will lunge off the sea floor and kill it, so they don’t have to hunt again for several weeks.
Ancestor: Nursery Sharks
Name: Cleaner Sharks
Description: These small, bright white little sharks spend their days swimming after Seasweepers, cleaning off their large arms of trapped debris and larger bits of food. They also have the ability to filter feed by themselves, but on a much smaller scale.
Ancestor: Cleaner Sharks
Name: Death Cleaners
Description: Evolved from a group of cleaner fish that mistook a False Sweeper for a Seasweeper, these fish eat the meat out of the hooks of the False Sweeper, actually allowing it to catch more food, as it’s prey is less likely to notice the scent of blood in the water. These fish will also occasionally swim into a school of Cleaner Fish, looking like one of them until it turns on it’s neighbor in a flurry of fins and blood. Normal Cleaner fish will sometimes group together to kill these intruders, but more often then not just quickly flee the scene.
Description: The sunstreak is a tan, slim descendant of the warrah, who hunts the plains with the grace and speed of a cheetah. Mostly hunting smaller game, groups can occasionally team up to tackle larger prey like solitary juvenile dandroms. They are probably some of the fastest land creatures on the Cavern, but are not very large, often eaten by hell-bears or getting into close encounters with Jag-leopards.
Ancestor: Guam Rail
Name: Flutterpuff Rail
Description: A small, fluffy relative of the rail, with powerful legs for jumping and a lightweight body with light feathers. It hops between branches, eating small bugs and leaves on it’s way up. Then, in giant flocks it will jump off the top of the trees, floating like dandelion seeds to the next patch of forest, with little control over it’s light glide. The most dangerous position for these small little critters is if they land in an open plain, easily chased down and snatched up by a wide variety of predators.
Only creatures left to be evolved before extinction are;
