The boomcracker split from its ancestor the shaggycoat. It has specialized in eating boomsticks. It uses its modified tusks to break off the hard boomstick stems. Its long prehensile tongue is tough and resists the sharp thorns. Once broken up into small enough pieces its amazing stomach digests the boomsticks. They have less cotton-like wool than their ancestors due to the extreme heat during the day. However at night it can get very cold.

During the day they mostly stay out of the heat in burrows. Inside they make nests made out of their own wool. They have 2 to 3 offspring at a time and live in herd of 4 to 16 individuals, mostly relatives. Each group shares in the communal burrow. They also will save up boomsticks in their burrow for leaner times. Sometimes they even use them like clubs to ward off predators.
