Ancestor:Descendants:

The cave earback split from tis ancestor the earback. It has follow the hard shelled egg-laying cave serpentsaur. It is very much like its ancestor except its ears and eyes have grown bigger and more sensitive to the darkness and echoing of the cave.

They lay their soft-frog-like eggs in the pools of water that lead to the water table. Once they have laid their eggs they will grow, hatch and they will come on to land to search for eggs like their parents.

The earback will make their homes in crevices on the floor and lower walls of the cave. They have better claws for climbing around the cave. Their ears now have spikes to protect against the cave serpentsaurs. Their tail is now prehensile and can hold on to rocks and boulders.

They are not social at all and only meet during mating season. If another earback is at the same nest eating eggs it will try to scare the other one off. Usually the bigger more aggressive one will win.
