| Bumble Batworm |
15/101, gamma-ray burst
|Habitat||Flisch Temperate Forest, Flisch-Krakow Rainforest|
|Size||10 cm Wingspan|
|Descendant of||Ancestor of|
The bumble batworm split from its ancestor the nectar batworm. It has adapted to follow the palmworm more inland, as both of them depend upon each other to survive. It is very much like its ancestor except for one main difference: its nose is longer and has fuzzy fairs at the end to allow the pollen-like gametes to stick in while it drinks the nectar, thus improving the pollination.
They are also much more social and fly in flocks from grove to grove. During the night they will roost together in the fronds of the palmworm. There is usually a leader who they follow to each grove. This leader gives off pheromones in which the others will taste in the air. Each pheromone gives a different message such as follow, danger or time to mate.
Since their eyes are on their backs they will fly backwards when going place to place but forwards when going into a flower to eat. Like their ancestor they have developed a mild poison that coats the outside of their body, keeping away most predators.
