When the numbers of the successful sandigging serpentsaur increased rapidly the competition for food grew harder making some serpentsaurs move southwards. Some sanddigging serpentsaurs ended up in Bone Swamp where they stayed since there were not any major predators, but lots of food allowing them to thrive. Using the same technique as before they hunted the small, quick animals of Bone Swamp. However, these creatures were quite quick and hard to catch, so the bloated serpentsaur was forced to develop camouflage, the eyestalks combined with the breathingtubes and mimic the black swampshroom, while the spikes on the tail grew longer and now mimic any purple or violet grasslike plant. The bloated serpentsaur do still experience times when they can catch no prey, even longer periods then they had back at Somarinoa beach sometimes, but their huge amount of extra fat compensates that. Their skin has adapted to the wet environment and is now full of small pores to allow the skin to absorb some of the water to hydrate the body. The mating system works like the mating system of the sanddigging serpentsaur, though the bloated serpentsaur lay more eggs less often due to the time it takes to get rid of the extra fat.
