Ancestor:Descendants:

The bumbleworm split from its ancestor, the bumble batworm. It has adapted to follow the cave palmworm into the caves Both of them depending upon each other to survive. It is physically identical to its ancestor. However its behavior has changed a lot. They now live in a communal hive. The dormant DNA from the silkworms have reemerged and they are able to make a pink cotton-candy-like hive. Inside they raise their young and store green honey. The honey is the nectar they eat and vomit back up. The oldest bumbleworms will give off pheromones to the younger inexperienced bumbleworms They will taste in it the air. Each pheromone gives a different message such as follow, danger or time to mate.

Like their ancestors they will fly backwards since their eyes are on their backs. They have increased their poison coats since they need to protect their hives. The poison dust is produced n the wings and then blown off into a predators eyes. This will temporarily blind them.
