Ancestor:Descendants:

The desert soriparasite is an offshoot of the soriparasite, having resulted from the countless soriparasites being carried out of the rainforest and onto the arid Huggs-Yokto Desert or into the cool of the Rabid Sandstone Caves. Those who could adapt found shelter on the skin of various predators and herbivores, and eventually gave rise to this smaller substrain. The desert soriparasite has lost several vestigial organs and adaptations, like the subclaw and tail of its ancestor. Its bottom jaw is succumbing to degeneration, having become a small toothless flap, since it served little purpose but provide unnecessary grip. Its second two pair of eyes have also become vestigial organs, to the point of nonfunction. The claws of the desert soriparasite have extended and become slightly curved, to help it hook on to its constantly moving, living, breathing home.

Instead of carrying its young in a pouch, the desert soriparasite has its young cling on to its back, letting them one at a time off the nipples on its underside.
